Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 18 August 2017

  Here is my weekly 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 "FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "use a colour you dislike/you don't use very often".

For those that know me there is no doubt what colour comes to mind for me for a colour that I dislike/don't use very often ............... and that is GREEN!!!

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 For my Christmas card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Aurora Woods" and I have coloured her in with my Promarkers.

The backing I made myself with lots of inks and stamps (swirls, mesh, holly leaves) doing lots of 1st generation, 2nd generation and 3rd generation stamping.

I have finished the card off with some holly and berries from a decoupage sheet and a stamped sentiment as I needed to keep the card as flat as possible as there are a lot of cards to post at Christmas time and it is so expensive.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
