That time of year approaches, and I am really excited about it! My small boys are just that bit older, so Christmas festivities take on a whole new dimension for the entire family! It’s so lovely watching it all unfold.
Anyway, I have been inspired by three Challenges this week, namely CASology;
Here are the inspiration pics:
I have gone with a Clean & Graphic style (or is it Clean & Layered? HELP!) showcasing this really gorgeous Jolly Christmas stamp-set from Uniko Studio.
You probably can’t see from the pic, but the bauble and trim on Santa’s hat and coat have been Wink of Stella’d, adding a hint of shimmer. Santa’s face has been shaded ever-so-slightly with flesh and pink coloured pencil, giving him rosy cheeks and ‘lifting’ him off the kraft without adding another layer.
Given the graphic, triangular feel of the Santa image, I was prompted to enter it into this week’s MUSE Challenge also. Therese’s card is graphic heaven, and I have taken poetic licence, hinting at the triangular shape of the focal image, and picking up the green, red, white and black in my card.
And, as always, I have joined in the ‘festive’ fun at CASology this week!
As always, thanks for visiting.
