Working on the Christmas Stash

Happy Sunday everyone :)

This weekend was busy with me with work and then our Christmas party. I've spent today doing the dreaded housework plus a little spare time was spent in the craft room.

I had previously stamped some images for me to come back to so I could colour them and finish up the cards. I'm working on extras for my Christmas stash as they will need to be posted pretty soon!

Card #1
I masked my image first so I could create the background using distress ink. I coloured Santa with my polychromo pencils and gamsol.

Card #2
Once again, I masked the images. I tore some paper to create some 'snowdrifts'. While the images were still masked, I used a stencil and distress ink to create the background. I also flicked a little white paint for interest. Polychromo pencils and gamsol were used to colour these cuties.

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Simon Says Stamp (Starry, Starry Night), Sparkles Christmas Challenge (Santa), 12 Months of Christmas (Anything Goes)
Card #2 - Cute Card Thursday (Winter), Penny Black and More (Christmas), STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge (Anything Goes)

Thanks for popping in today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
