WOJ Challenge 50 & SSS


Hello everyone, this is just another quick post..... one of the endless christmas cards that I'm making fits the bill for two challenges. I have followed the fabulous sketch from WOJ challenge 50 and I'm also entering this card into the SSS challenge which has a colour combo of red and green.


I have used the very lovely Willow with Lantern from WOJ and I have coloured her with distress inks. I used the out of bounds nestie trick to get her dress flowing out of the edge of the oval and I think it gives a lovely effect. The papers are basic grey and all the embellies are from my stash.

Finally, a close up of the image.

Supplies
Card/Paper: Cream and green card, Basic Grey - Wassail
Stamps: WOJ - Willow with Lantern
Colouring: Distress inks - fired brick, tattered rose, peeled paint, weathered wood, black soot, spiced marmalade, walnut stain. Dk gree whispers pen
Embellishments: Flower, pearl, PM pearl brad, stickles
Tools: MS snowflake punch, Leone em Branch punch water brush, cuttlebug, nesties, snowflake embossing folder

Thanks for looking x
