Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Wednesday 20 May 2020

 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:


This week the Design Team were challenged to "make a shaped card".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme. 
 I have used some arch dies to make my cute little 13cm x 10cm Christmas card.  I have used one of my all time favourite Ching-Chou Kuik's images for Christmas but this time I have used the greyscale version - "Poinsettia Fairy - Greyscale" (she comes in the "Hello Christmas Set" along with five other images).

I have coloured my image in with Promarkers, die-cut with the arch die and inked around the edge with a VersaMagic eggplant chalk ink pad.

The backing paper I have used is from Hobbycraft and I have used as a backdrop to the image as well as die-cutting with my smallest poinsettia die.  

I have finished the card off quite simply with a LOTV digital sentiment, decorative red ribbon and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
