The new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown is a rather unusual colour challenge - brown, green and kraft. Not a traditionally festive combo, but it made me think of pine boughs.
I made the background by stamping the old PSX Large Pine Cone stamp randomly over kraft card, using Versamark ink, and then dusting it lightly with brown and green chalk - I didn't want to add a lot and make the images too bold, or it wouldn't have shown up the die cutting and sentiment so well.
I used one of the sentiment stamps from my recent Uniko prize and then edged the panel with green ink. Finally I added a selection of die cut pine cones, pine and fir branches and ivy.
Right, I'll be offline for a few days now - unless I get so desperate I end up taking my iPad to Tesco and using the free Wi-Fi. I do have a couple of scheduled posts coming up, for CD Sundays and Cardz 4 Guyz, so YOU can see ME tomorrow and Tuesday - and I can see YOU again later in the week!
