A Sled Full of Goodies!

Hello, hope you are well?

Another Christmas offering today inspired by the Graph’itMarkers Blog Challenge ‘No Characters; Colour an Accessory’   Eeeeek!  No characters!  What, no cute animals or adorable kids!  Oh heck!

So what did I manage to come up with?  Well I have a fab stamp set from Woodware that has a lot of Christmas ‘accessories’ on it all full of wonderful spaces to add colour.  I love this set.  The designs are so stunningly simple but no less beautiful for it.   I chose to use the sled full of pressies (mmmmmm pressies).

I coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers and added patterns to all the gift wrapping for added interest.  I embossed the background and inked round the edges with Barn Door DI.

I cut a La-La-Land banner and added some holly that I stamped and coloured from the same Woodware stamp plate .

The sentiment is LOTV embossed with WOW powder and cut using a Spellbinders circle die (well I can’t cut a circle to save my life! I can’t cut a straight line either!).

I felt the need to add a touch of glitter (would be rude not to) and some gems and there we go; all done and not a character in sight.

Might have to have a lie down now!

See ya!

Smiling always (could get used to this no skin, no fur thing)!

Scribbly hugs
