Ching-Chou Kuik - Holly Night

Here is a Christmas card I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamp image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Holly Night".  It is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and on a plate (Sheet 21, Plate 60 and the Holly Night comes on the plate with the images Poinsettia Fairy, Holly Fairy and Cherish Christmas).

I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and highlighted areas with chalks/Pan Pastels/white gel pen.  I have gone around the image with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink pad.  I have distressed the card I have used with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.  The backing papers are from DCWV.  I have finished the card off with some lace, cheesecloth, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some Card Candi.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Animals
Crafty Catz - Christmas in July
Card Crafter's Circle - Christmas in July

Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in July
Deep Ocean - Christmas in July
