Red At Christmas

You just know that it's never long before I make another Christmas card! For this one I've used a wonderful Penny Black stamp and coloured it with Promarkers. The background has been coloured with a rather faded (but still functional!) tiny blue inkpad.

Papers are Papermania Home For Christmas 6x6 stack which have been layered onto some dark red cardstock I had in my stash. The flowers are from The Craft Garden but I don't think they are currently stocked as I've had them for quite some time! I coloured some orange brads with my Promarkers to match the flowers.

I've followed the Sweet Stop Sketches sketch and would also like to enter the following challenges:

Sparkles Christmas Challenge: Robins
Christmas Stampin': Gimme The Bird
Allsorts: Red
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Anything Goes

  • Image: Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: Papermania Home For Christmas 6x6 stack
  • Flowers: The Craft Garden
  • Everything else: My stash
