Santa's Sleigh

This is another of the images that I started to colour ages ago, it's a Stampavie stamp called Santa's Sleigh and I got it in a sale back in the spring, stamped it up and put it in the box .. .. I've coloured with Copics and was going to add some sparkle to the stars but forgot, perhaps I'll go back and do it later if I have time. I've created a C6 card for the MacMillan big coffee morning on Friday so need to get a move on and finish off inside and get it in a cello bag.

Here's the card, another piece of paper from my stash, a few Nellie's Choice punch and emboss poinsettias layered up and finished off with little gold gems plus a digi circular greeting from Cuddly Buddly and a little gold bow. A bright and colourful card I think you'll agree!

The Copic shades I used were R24, 27, 29 and 39 for the red shades, YG00, 03 and 25 for the greens, YR21, 23, 24 for the gold tones with Y35, 38 and YR04 for the brighter oranges. V15, 17 and 09 for the touches of purple and E30, 31, 55 and 57 for the reindeer. The blue along the star skids is B0000 and B000.

The Bah Humbug challenge is for Rudolph or Reindeer creations, so here's one for them, and over on the Sweet Stampin' challenge blog it's anything goes, with an optional sketch that I didn't use.

We are still waiting for the Indian Summer to arrive here in Cornwall - it is very breezy and rather cloudy today, but there are patches of blue sky now and then. I have managed to create two tiny semi circles of garden next to the wall for a few of my herbs, thankfully the garlic chive flowers seem to stand up well in the constant sea breezes. I've put in some Spring bulbs around them, but wonder if they will last or get the petals blown away the minute they open.

  4. Love the way the stars stand out against that blue "ray" & the colours are just terrific with the fun image. Your violets on the sleigh really accent so well & your oranges pick out the poinsettia centres beautifully. Hope your plants survive.
