Oh Christmas Tree

Hiya Everyone

Long time no see!  How are you all?  Good I hope.

It's Saturday so it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and our theme for this week is "3 Patterned Papers".  Our generous sponsor for the challenge is Heather's Hobbie Haven so if you want to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their on-line store then get your entries in over at Totally Gorjuss and as always, check our what my wonderful teamies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is the card I have made:

The recipe for the card is:

Digital Papers:  Nitwit - Woodland Wishes (GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!)
Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - James - Christmas Tree
Post Office Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Grunge Christmas Postmarks
Sentiment Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Christmas Grungy Messages
Trees and Stars:  Nitwit - Woodland Wishes
Pearls:  The Hobby House - Ruby Mix (these are on offer at just 75p at the moment - grab them while you can!)

I have coloured the image with Copics:

James the Bear:  E55 E53 E51 E50 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Tree:  YG99 YG97 YG95 YG93 / YR24 YR23 Y21 / E27 E25 E23
Hat:  TV69 RV66 V06/ C1 C0 C00
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0 W00

I have used a bit of normal bandage behind the image
I have outlined the image with B01 with my Copic Airbrush
The papers have been outlined with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

I have one more image of the inside of the card which is waiting for it's verse so you can get another quick look at those gorgeous papers:

And that's it.

It's good to be back and hopefully I will be able to catch up with a lot of you over the weekend.

Ta ta for now.

This is so gorgeous Hazel and sooo refreshing with some new colors in between the traditional ones too. It´s many years, since we first used the purple here for christmas, and we´ve used it wuite a bit ever since, and I still think, it looks amazing.
