Somehow, for all of my Christmas card making, ABC Christmas Challenge has flown under my radar until now. But a friend let me know that they are currently looking for new design team members (thanks, Carol!) and so I'm joining in now!
The current challenges are W is for Wishes and X is for Xmas. I've made one for each. First, my Xmas card:
I made a galaxy sky background using a number of distress inks. It's also spritzed and spattered with shimmer mists and white acrylic paint. My reindeer is watercolored with distress ink for Kathy Racoosin's The Daily Marker 30 Day colouring challenge. I couldn't resist giving him a red nose with Nuvo glitter drops - it also gave me an excuse to add a red sentiment and card base.
Next up is my wishes card:
I used a Hero Arts layering wreath with three different green inks. The scoring, I hope, subtly suggests a door frame. The wreath is decorated with red, gold and silver confetti sequins and a die cut bow. The red foil cardstock? A dollar store find!
I am back tomorrow with the last day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags! (Yes, there are actually 26 days. 😉) Hope to see you back here then!
