Two in one day

Hello again

As it is nearly Christmas I thought I would spoil you and do 2 posts in one day. This card is another I made for my boys - 
I began by covering a 6 inch square card blank with red Bazzil card. I then cut a piece of paper (from my Christmas stash - I've had it for ages so not really sure which company made it) with Tonic's twisted twine square outer die and Tonic's Square base Affections inner die and wrapped apiece of ribbon (from the Ribbon Girl) around the centre. I then attached this to the card base.
The image is Penny Black's Warm wishes which I coloured with the following Promarkers - 

  • cat - ice grey 1, ice grey 2, ice grey 4 and dusky rose
  • dog - sandstone, tan, cinnamon, burnt sienna, true blue, azure and a gold gel pen
  • stockings - red, berry red, crimson, holly, pine, lavender, orchid, amethyst and azure
  • presents - lavender, orchid, amethyst, berry red, crimson and canary
  • fire and fireplace - warm grey 1, warm grey 3, warm grey 5, canary, gold, tequila sunrise and heatwave
  • candles - ivory, pastel beige, tulip yellow, canary, gold and heatwave
  • holly - berry red, pine and holly
  • rug - canary, gold, tequila sunrise and heatwave
I cut the image out using a Tonic layering square, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and matted onto a piece of red Bazzil card. I then attached the topper to the card base with foam pads.
I stamped the sentiment which comes in the set, cut it out and then matted it onto a piece of red card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - special occasions - challenge 250 - anything goes (3rd entry)
