CRAFT Challenge 536

I'm honoured to be a Guest Designer at CRAFT this week.  The challenge theme is Make Your Own Embellishment!  The sponsors for this week are QKR Stampede and Colour of Love.

I had a few QKR images in my stash so decided to use Bringing a Tree which you can find here.  The image has been coloured with Copics and the edges distressed with Vintage Photo ink.  Behind the image are deep red and Kraft card to frame it.

I must admit to being terrified by the challenge, I've never made my own embellishments before.  I thought I'd try my hand a my own banner.  Digging around in my Christmas design paper stash I fished out a few with similar tones.  I cut triangles and folder them over gluing them to some string - YAY!! It worked :D

I just finished the card off with a Christmas sentiment from Make It Crafty coloured with Copic.

Thanks for popping by for a look, I'll look forward to commenting on your cards!

I always love seeing your creations, Andrea. And, as always, your coloring on this image is stellar! I can almost feel the scratchy burlap when I look at your card. Amazing! (I'm a DT for QKR and this image is going on my "need list" because your card just brings the cute Santa to life!) Thanks for joining us at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog. DT Kathy []
