Christmas Plaids

It’s Friday, so time for another challenge at QKR Stampede!  Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself? My DT card features a fun digi from Eureka Stamps named “Bear In Scarf.” I colored the little snowball thrower with Spectrum Noir Coloring System alcohol markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The colored image is backed with a scrap of red paper, then layered upon a background of trees (stamped with a vintage Embossing Arts wood mount that is masked with a scrap of paper to created “hills.”) The inside sentiment, mounted atop Christmas plaid paper, is a freebie from TLC Creations. You can find it HERE.

Friday also means that I get to share DT cards for the Colour Crazy Challenge. I love this challenge because it is always “Anything Goes” AND it requires coloring in “any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.” I’ve never outgrown my love for coloring… which is why I so love making cards! The challenges last for 2 weeks but four DT teams take turns posting weekly inspiration every Friday. Join us and you might win prizes from our challenge sponsors!
Our sponsor this week is Oddball Arts and my card features a digi named “Rudolph.” I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The vintage sheet music on the background is a freebie that I found HERE. His shiny nose is truly shiny... since I used a red rhinestone!  The “Magical Christmas” sentiment inside of the card, layered atop Christmas plaid, is a freebie from Birdscards

My final card for this challenge went together very quickly. It includes scraps of ribbon, paper lace and patterned paper, including one Christmas Plaid (I do love Christmas plaid… if you didn’t already realize that!) The circle sentiment on the front and sticker sentiment on the inside are both from a scrapbook embellishment set. Simple but yet slightly elegant. (Oh, and the white scrap was made with the gold string spray that used on the Thank You card in my last post.)
