MilkCoffee Showcase – Christmas is Coming

Hello there and how are you doing? 

I am here to let you know that it is showcase day over on the MilkCoffee Blog 
and our theme this time is Christmas is Coming, and you know what, it is! (Trying to contain ridiculously high pitched squeal of excitement!!)

So today I have chosen to use the gorgeous Lisbeth and Mr Deer available here a stunning image that begs to be coloured so I was happy to oblige with my Spectrum Noirs. 

I admit to being a bit nervous about attempting this; I mean that is a lot of deer!! But my teamie Samantha did such an amazing job with this image on a previous showcase (check it out on her blog  here) that I thought I would give it a go.

I created a wreath using Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles and stuck Spellbinder poinsettias and glittered snowflakes all around it. There are some All Occasions dies and Tonic punched snowflakes in there too, somewhere!

The paper is Kanban (I think) and the sentiment is from LOTV. 

I added pearls (the liquid kind too), clear dew drops and a bow to finish things off.

Why not pop over to the MilkCoffeechallenge blog to see all the amazing creations by my fellow team mates.  They’ll knock your Crimbo socks off!!

See ya!

Scribbly hugs
Jane xx
