Traditional Christmas Colours - Red and Green - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 24th of November, 2017

I'm late again, as I was travelling for work and then we have had thunder and lightning storms which has meant that I can't use my computer. :(

However, this fortnight we are hosted by Helen, who has decided that the theme will be......

Traditional Christmas Colours - Red and Green

Please remember that it is Christmas Projects only.
So here is my card:

Here is a close up of the colouring:

I have used the Snowman and Bird digital stamp from our wonderful sponsor Sasayaki Glitter.

They are offering the winner one digi image of their choice.
and their challenge blog is here -
They also have a Facebook page -

I digitally printed this beautiful snowman image using my Silhouette Cameo on to X-Press It paper and then had my Silhouette cut out the image (so much easier than fussy cutting!)

I have then coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • snowman - 0, C1, C3, YR09, 100 (button)
  • snowman's arms - E74, E77, E79
  • snowman's scarf - YG03, G05, G07, R27
  • snowman's heart - R24, R27, R29, Wink of Stella
  • snowman's hat - R24, R27, R29
  • bird - Y11, Y15, YR09, RV19 (heart), Wink of Stella
  • flower - V25, Y15, Wink of Stella
  • snow - 0, B00, Wink of Stella, white gel pen
  • background - 0, B00, B000
I have then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with one of those sponges to add some colour to the front of the card with some more white gel pen snowflakes. 

I have then made a shaker card with a piece of transparency that I found on my shelves! Along with two layers of some thick double sided foam tape and a piece of green card stock that I have used a square die from KaiserCraft to cut my window for the shaker. Added some glitter, silver stars, pale blue and white seed beads and some die cut scraps to complete the shaker.

As you can see the foam tape (well I can anyway!) I have coloured it with YG97 Copic pen and then as I made a bit of an oopps on the green cardstock, I ran a line of it around the edge.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
