Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Challenge - August 2016 - The Four Seasons

 It is time for another challenge over at the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Facebook Group.

The challenge for August 2016 is "THE FOUR SEASONS",

Even though I am in the Blog Design Team I have decided to play along as well.

My choice was Winter and I decided to make a Christmas card.
 For my Christmas card I have used one of my all time favourite Ching-Chou Kuik's image "Holly Fairy" (Holly Fairy comes in a set of 4 images - the other images are Cherish Christmas, Poinsettia Fairy and Merry Season) and I have coloured her with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the holly berries for some dimension.  I have inked around the edge of the image with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink.

The backing papers are from various Debbi Moore CDs.

bright and cheerful summery card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Blue Sea Illusion".

I have finished the card off with scrunched ribbon, sentiment from my Christmas Creative Crafting World CD, die-cut holly with chalk ink added to the edges and some red mirri card candi,

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
