Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 16 February 2018

 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 "ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE".

This week the Design Team were challenged with the topic of "patchwork".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 I have decided to make sure I keep making Christmas cards throughout the year like I did last year.  It makes things less stressful come November/December time!!  As this is likely to be a posted card I have had to keep it as flat as possible.

For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Holly Fairy" (which comes in a set of 3 other images - Merry Season, Poinsettia Fairy and Cherish Christmas).  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and then used my Graph'it gold sparkle pen for the background.

The backing papers are from my stash.  I decided to cut 9 squares with a The Works square stitched die and alternated them on the backing card to form a patchwork effect.

I have finished the card off with some organza ribbon, die-cut sentiment and some pearls.

Promarkers used: 

Face/skin/fairy's wings - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Raw Sienna, Cocoa and Spice
Holly leaves - Forest Green and Lush Green
Berries - Red and Poppy Red.
