Christmas Gifts - Winter Wonderland Challenge for 20th of July, 2018

I am really late this fortnight for Winter Wonderland as we had a visitor last weekend - my nine year old's Godfather from Germany! It was the first time that we have seen Peter since we left Germany in 2010, so it was very exciting and we had a busy weekend planned showing him our city and surroundings.

Anyway, now that I have finally finished my card for last weekend this weekend, I had better post it!
So here it is:

Hazel is hosting us this fortnight at Winter Wonderland and the theme is Christmas Gifts.
Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

We are sponsored this fortnight by LeAnn's World 101

Hello all, my name is LeAnn Wariner. I have been painting and drawing since I was a little girl. I am a nurse by profession but, like many of you, am unable to work due to medical conditions. I began drawing a couple of years ago and now bring to you my digital "Stamps by LeAnn's World 101". I look forward to seeing your colorings and creations. Thank you from my world to yours.

Xoxo LeAnn

The prize on offer for the challenge winner is 2 digital stamps from LeAnn's World 101 Etsy store.

So back to my card:
I digitally printed Santa's Helper on to X-Press It blending card, which I then had my Silhouette Cameo cut out. I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E02, E21, E11, E04
  • eyes - B66
  • hair - E33, E35, E37, E39
  • clothing - R32, R35, R37, C0, C1, clear Wink of Stella, Crystal Ice Stickles
  • boots - C5, C7, C9
  • sack - E13, E15, E17, R35, G02, G05, G07
  • presents - V22, V25, R32, R35, R37, Y11, Y15, Y17, B63, B66, B69, G07
  • background - V20

I have attached my two Santa's Helpers on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
Then I stamped the sentiment "A little something just for you" from Under Glass: Christmas Keepsakes by Power Poppy using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

As I am so late, I was just going to post this, but I had a quick look at my previous post and found that my colouring for Not Just Cards has actually been picked for a 3 month Guest Designer spot! Very exciting!! :)

So I will definitely add this card to the following challenges:
Colour Crazy Challenge Week 30 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - this is where I won the Guest Designer spot!
Sweet Stampin' Christmas July Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes
