Crafty Catz Challenge - Christmas In May

It's time for the start of this week's challenge over at Crafty Catz and our theme is anything goes with the option of Christmas in May. I know Christmas might seem a way off (especially with the nice weather we've been having) but it's always a good idea to get ahead and start on those Christmas cards early! Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor this week and they kindly gave the team some images to work with. I've chosen to use the lovely Reindeer Trio digi stamp for this card.






I've kept the card really simple as there is so much going on in the image that it doesn't need much doing to it. I printed the image onto For The Love Of Stamps white colour me! card (this is ideal for use with alcohol pens as it's super smooth, making it easy to blend the colours together) and coloured it in using Spectrum Noir alcohol pens, adding some dotty details to look like parts were paper-pieced. I stuck the image straight onto the card blank using foam pads. I'd like to say it was a quick card to make but the colouring actually took quite a while!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
My Bestie Spanish Challenge #47 todo vale

Creatalicious #139 anything goes with optional all that glitters
Digi Choosday week 21 anything goes
Crafty Sentiments anything goes
