Christmas Pink

Hey Guys, My last Christmas card to show you and this one uses the colour combination inspiration from the Basic Grey Challenge which is Blue, Cream and Pink.

I've chosen to use the lovely Oakley with Christmas Bauble another of my favourites from the Whiff Of Joy Winter Kit - perhaps an odd choice for the colour combo? LOL! The Basic Grey paper is from the Granola set.


So I've used my PrismaColor pencils and Sansodor to colour him and put him on an embossed piece of White Wash card from Core-dinations.

I've hand stitched this one, with a little swirl and snowflake motif and stitched some lace and beads onto the embossed card.


The sentiment from the CC Designs Cookie Crumbs Reason from the Season set was stamped onto some calico and then I stitched a border with some beads around it.


I had some fabulous news the lovely folks at Saturday Spotlight Challenge picked my Willow with Christmas Candle make as a favourite! Thank you guys, you have made my day!

Less than a handful of days to go....
Kim

  10. I absolutely love the idea of using textiles. Some time ago I found a simple christmascard done by my brother as he was a child, it was the same idea (but of course not that beautiful ;) )
