Season's Greetings From Across the Miles

For this Christmas card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Crimson Holly".  I have coloured her with my Graph'it pens and made a Pan Pastel background with mixing areas of a yellow Pan Pastel with a green Pan Pastel.  I have inked around the edge of the image with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink.

The backing papers I was given.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut Tim Holtz rosette, button, die-cut holly, Katy Sue Designs envelope sentiment and some gorgeous white cotton border lace from Buckwell Craft Supplies.

Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and Inspiration Blog - Post by Kym - Wednesday 19 November 2014

Yes I am back again with another post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and Inspiration Blog.

I posted on Monday but am posting again today as Design Team Member Sylvia is taking a little break.
For my Christmas card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp from the Etsy Store called "Toadstool Head".  I might have used a traditional red and green colour scheme for Christmas but it's certainly not a traditional style of image but lots of people don't like traditional.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and added Stickles glitter glue to her wings.  For the grass and sky I used my Pan Pastels and to get the clouds I used a cloud stencil and my battery operated eraser to remove the blue - perfect - now why hadn't I thought of that sooner???
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs "Christmas Traditions 2".

I have finished the card off with stamped sentiment, card candi, tissue paper poinsettia, button and some gorgeous cotton border lace from Buckwell Craft Supplies.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee and Cream - Your favourite holiday (Christmas)
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything goes
