This week at Crafty Creations Challenges, we're helping you get your Christmas cards done! The challenge this week is to create a Christmas card and include a sentiment. Our sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley. I used their beautiful Advent Calendar image:
I started with the advent calendar on some oatmeal cardstock -- I thought the colour and texture suited the image. Then I paper-pieced the dates and Christmas tree, and used a bunch of different media to colour everything: watercolour pencils, gold shimmer paint, white flocking and red glitter glue. When I went to cut out the image, there was no way I could cut around the original hanger effectively, so instead I added some twine and a brad to hang it from. I picked a sentiment to reflect the warm cozy feel of the image. The twine qualifies this card for the challenge at Do You Stack Up (DYSU#48) to use something you can tie.
Play along with our challenge for your chance to win a £10 gift voucher from Lili of the Valley!
I'll be back later today with my winner from the Amber Ink blog hop!
