Crafty Ann's Challenge #54 - Sketch and/or monochrome

Another busy day as it's time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  This time Ann has challenge us to "sketch and/or monochrome":
Well for my card I had planned to go for the sketch and the monochrome but a plain red backing paper didn't do the lovely image proud so off I went and used one of Crafty Ann's tartan papers.  The image is "cracker teddy" and I have coloured him with Promarkers and added Flowersoft Polar White to the edge of his hat and his pom-pom.  I have used various craps of card for mounting and I have cut a scrap of red striped card into squares, rounded the edges and went around the edge with a red Promarker.  The card is finished off with some peel-offs, Crafty Ann's poinsettias finished off with Papermania Glitterations to the centre.  I have kept the embellishments low in height and to a minimum as it can be a costly time at Christmas when posting cards.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

2 Sisters - Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas traditions - crackers
I Did it Creations - Christmas/winter
Pile it On - Traditional Christmas
Forever Friends - Christmas is coming
Digital Tuesday - Christmas time

Hi there Kym: I don't think I have ever seen Tartan paper before. It looks fantastic on your card! The image is beautiful and WOW did you do a great job of following that sketch! That would not be easy but you have it to a T. Your coloring if great, shading perfect! A pleasure to see such a different style of card. Great luck with all your challenges and of course, ours at FOREVER FRIENDS. Divine Love, Samara
