Anything Christmas Goes for Winter Wonderland for the 4th of December, 2020

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Helen.
Welcome to our twelfth and final challenge for 2020.

Our theme is:

Anything Goes!

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

We don't have a sponsor this challenge, so we could use anything that we wanted! So I have used a new digital stamp from the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy.

I chose Garden of Gratitude: Boot Bouquet for my image, which I digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card along with one of the sentiments and then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • boots - BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, C3, C5, C7, brown Wink of Stella
  • poinsettia - RV42, RV04, RV66
  • poinsettia centre - Y08, Y38, E87
  • holly - G21, G85, G28, G29
  • berries - R29, R46, RV99, clear Wink of Stella or RV66, R59, RV99, clear Wink of Stella
  • leaves - YG63, BG96, YG67
  • hellebores - YG00, YG03, colourless blender
  • other flower (I think a hibiscus!) - YR12, Y11, Y15, E35 (centre) RV93, C00, C0, colourless blender
  • background - BG0000, BG000, colourless blender
  • lettering - clear Wink of Stella
  • outline - RV66
I then used Distress crayons in seedless preserves, chipped sapphire, peeled paint and fossilised amber on a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions, blended the colours with water and then splattered some activated antiqued bronze. It is the first time I have used this crayons and I think that I will have to get the rest of them so that I can use them so more!

Here is a close-up of the distress crayon colouring:

I then adhered the coloured Boot Bouquet on to the card.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
