All challenges EXCLUDE the use of stamps, which can be quite a challenge. The current challenge is to create a Christmas Card for those enjoying Christmas in sunnier climates. I love Christmas Trees, for me they are a sign of friendship. I just had to create a nice sunny yellow background for this challenge.
Merry and Bright
Background: Take a piece of yellow card and sponge over some light lustre yellow paint. When dry make a stencil from a swirl punch and stencil with gold paint.
Tree: Cover some scrap card with an old book page, paint over with white gesso, when dry colour with chalk pastels. Scatter on lots of red sequins, secure with glue. Attach a star. Punch out 2 swirls from silver card for the tree base. Attach tree to card base.
