Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 14 December 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 "a birthday card".
The Design Team have all been challenge this week to use the same image from the Etsy Store, "Aurora Woods".

For my Christmas card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Aurora Woods".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, chalked the background and edged the image with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink.  I have added some Flowersoft Polar White for the fur on her hat.

I have used a holly stamp to decorate the front of the card and used a red pencil for the holly berries.  I made my own backing paper with various red and green distress inks (Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Pine Needles, Fired Brick and Festive Berries) and spritzed with water and sprinkled on some gold mica powder and left to dry.  

I have finished the card off with a tag shaped sentiment, card candi and I have made two die-cut poinsettias out of red and green tissue paper - it gives the effect without the weight all held together with some extra long Tim Holtz brads.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
