Crafting When We Can Challenges #4 - Christmas Come Early

Thank you to all who entered last week challenge, I hope you enjoyed the bingo card as much as I did.  

This weeks challenge is 'Christmas Come Early'.  I'm hoping this will give me the kick start I need to start mine earlier this year.  I am one of those who tend to leave it until half way through December before I start, then I have to post them 1st class to make sure they get there and that cost me a fortune last year.

Our sponsor, Tickled Pink Stamps, let us choose our own image for this challenge and I chose 'Lil Victorian Christmas Lolita Kellita' I think this is such a versatile image and cannot only be used at Christmas.

Our Sponsor this week

This week my card was a joint effort by my daughter and I.  When my daughter saw the image she just had to have a copy to colour in.  She used Promarkers and chose the colours herself.  I decided to try watercolouring in my image, big mistake, the inkjet edges bled an spoilt the image so as my daughter had made such a good job of colouring in her image I asked if I could use it.  The background papers are from Dezinaworld and look much more vibrant IRL.  I used stickles to highlight the flourishes and lights.  I think this image is so versatile it could be used for loads of things, get well, happy birthday, love you.

Hop over to the Challenge blog and join in I'm sure in the next 2 weeks you'll be making at least 1 card you will be able to enter.
