Christmas stockings

If you're looking for my All Dressed Up blog hop post click here

I'm honoured today to be a guest designer at Scrapping4Fun.  The challenge for the next fortnight is Traditional Christmas Colours

Here's photo for your inspiration

I've not really got going properly with my Christmas cards yet so this was a good opportunity for me to make one :D

I was very luck to have won some stamps recently from Wild Rose Studio - the one I've picked to use today is Owls on Branch.  They've been coloured with a combination of Copics and ProMarkers.  The image cut out with a Spellbinders die has been distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen ink.

This was a great layout I picked to use as it gave me chance to use up some of those off cuts I've been hoarding!  The design papers being from Craftwork Cards and Lili of the Valley.

I've added a wooden heart with a Happy Christmas sentiment and some red ribbon with a hand tied bow, some paper string which came all the way from Dorinda in the USA last year and a brass Christmas stocking which came from Live and Love Crafts.

Hope you like my traditional Christmas inspiration
