Xmas in July.....................

Hello there

It's time for Digi Choosday and a new challenge, this week we are having Christmas in July and being a complete Christmas lover, I am very excited about this weeks challenge.  I decided to make a twisted easel card and I was quite impressed with how it turned out.

I used Emma Canning's 'Mistletoe Kisses' which you can get from the 'Digistamp Heaven Collection'. I also chose to use the tree from the same collection. I coloured them both with a mixture of Graph'It Markers and Copics. I love the fact that Graph'It's blend so well with Copics and really blend so well.  The papers are from the fabulous new 'Festive Hollibobs Work & Play Collection'

 The markers used are as follows:

Mistletoe Kisses:
Skin:  E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: 3210, 3255, 3270, 3290
Clothes: 5210, 5220, 5245
Mistletoe:  YG03, YG17

G24, G28, G29, E55, E57, E59
Pot: 5210, 5220, 5245

I used a snowflake embossing folder for added texture and I added some snowflakes for effect. Some gems and flowers for effect and I was quite happy with the result.

So there you have it, I hope you like it!

Please remember to go to the main Digi Choosday Challenge blog and see the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.  

See you soon
