Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 2 November 2015

It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "Christmas".
For my Christmas card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Gingerbread Man Parade".  I have always had a dislike of gingerbread people but I couldn't resist using this stunning image.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, chalked the background and edged the image with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink.

I have made my own backing paper.  I added colours of ink (Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Faded Jeans) onto a piece of watercolour card.  I then spritzed with water and added table salt and left to dry overnight.  I then brushed with an anti-static pad and then stamped with Versafine and some snowflake stamps and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then added some frantage in areas.

I die-cut some snowflakes out some of the extra background I made.

The card has been finished off with some ribbon, die-cut snowflakes, sentiment and buttons.

I am entering this Christmas card into the following challenges:
