PTW meets Everybody-Art


Last night I started out to make a card for this week's PTW Challenge, which is a fab sketch by Dawny P. Before I knew it I was in full on Christmas card mode again, bringing out some yummy BasicGrey paper I had squirreled away last year, just so that I could put it with my new Prima Christmas flowers.

Whilst on the subject I thought it would be nice to enter this card into the Everybody Art Challenge #15, whose theme this week is winter ... I would interpret holly and poinsettas as being pretty wintery even though they aren't cold like snow!

I used my Penny Black pussy cat stamp "Holly Jolly", coloured with watercolour pencils and H2O's, decorated with Papermania red gems for the berries, and matted onto dark green glitter card. The background papers are both BasicGrey - "Two Scoops" (green) and "fruitcake" (holly); flowers are from the Prima red Christmas bubble, and ribbon and pearl brads are both by Papermania. The greeting and corner holly sprigs are both E-Z rubons.

Thanks for looking :-)

  1. Beautiful Card Pauline. You've got an expert eye for colour - the ribbon ties in perfectly with the shades on the BG papers. I love this card (and the puddy-tat is one of my favourites!)
