This week is the last challenge of the year for the CCEE Stampers as we take a Christmas break. Thank you to everyone who joins us and plays along for the fun of it.
Frances' challenge was to make a card/project featuring Santa. I have one tiny Santa stamp really only suitable for tags, and as I've already made more tags than I need, I got out my only other Santa stamp - and was relieved to see that there's also an owl in the gallery as well as the more traditional Santas :D.
A2 black base. Green paper is an unsuccessful attempt at making plaid with alcohol inks but I didn't want to waste it. Holly at the bottom is from SU's All Season Wreath, sentiment is ODBD Cardinal Ornament.
Main image is Design Objectives Forever Friends, stamped on watercolour paper with Versafine Black and coloured with distress inks - Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy, Chipped Sapphire, Fired Brick, Soot Black, Pumice Stone, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey. I added Glossy Accents to the lantern. Holly spray has a pearl and some tiny bling for the berries.
I'll try to get a better daylight photo - I finished this too late yesterday! I used yesterday's sketch #415.

This is just adorable Sabrina! I love the little pearl. Those dots reminded me of how Faith(Markie's Mom) used to have dots around a lot of her projects. I hope you and "C" have a wonderful Christmas. HUGS!!
