Use Your Favourite Christmas Colour Combination - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 12th of May 2017

For the next two weeks at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by Christine, who has chosen the theme: USE YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS COLOUR COMBINATION.

So, this is my card:
No automatic alt text available.

I have used an image called Penguin Carols from our sponsor Pink Gem Designs.

Janet, the owner of Pink Gem Designs is offering the winner of the challenge 2 single digi images or 2 card topper kits, or one of each.

Pink Gem Designs is based in Stourport and began trading in November 2008 designing cute and whimsical craft stamps in clear polymer. As digi products became more popular Pink Gem Designs also started to product digital stamps, card topper kits and other digital products such as downloadable papers, clip art etc.

I have printed Penguin Carols on to X-Press It paper, fussy cut using my Silhouette Cameo and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • black of penguins - C5, C7, C9
  • white of penguins - C0, colourless blender
  • cheeks of penguins - R20
  • nose and feet of penguins - YR12, YR07
  • reds of hats - R32, R35, R37
  • green of hats - G02, G05, G17, Wink of Stella
  • white of hats - Wink of Stella
  • book cover - YG11, YG06, YG09
  • book pages - E41
  • candle - G05
  • flame - Y06
  • light - Y08
  • lamp - E81, E84, E87
  • hook - C3
  • background - BG0000, BG01
I have then followed the latest sketch from CAS(E) this sketch!:

I turned the sketch around and then adhered a piece of gold music paper from Christmas Carol by KaiserCraft using double-sided tape. The coloured image was adhered on top and then the sentiment "wintertime wishes" from Cozy Cupfuls by Power Poppy was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink using my MISTI.
