It's Christmas...................................!!!

Hello there!!!

Two things to be excited about today, one it is my birthday (PRESENTS) and two it's Digi Choosday Challenge day and this weeks theme is 'Christmas' and I LOVE Christmas!!  Of course I have used the 'Work & Play Festive Hollibobs' which is available as a CDRom and a digi kit download.

I opted to use the image of 'Boy with Robin' which you can also buy as an individual digi stamp.  I colooured the image with my Graph'It Markers, you can see the range here.  

I used the following markers:

Skin:  4115, 4125, 4155, 4170 & 3210
Hair:  3110 & 3140
Hat & Boots: 9401, 9402, 9403, 9405, 9406, 9409
Holly:  8140, 8160, 5245
Coat:  7240, 7250, 7260 & 7270
Jeans:  9102, 9103, 9104, 9105
Scarf & Gloves:  9502, 9503, 9504 & 9406
Robin:  9401, 9403, 3210, 5210, 5220
Fence:  3255, 3270, 3290

 I added some flowersoft polar white for snow and used Graph'Its White Marker for a snow effect. I cut the image out with Spellbinders 'Pearl Effects' die. I edged round the white die cut with a blue pan pastel.  

I used one of the Polkadoodles Chalkboard Stamps, I stamped it in versamark and then embossed it in silver. 

I love these stamps! So gorgeous.

I added some die cut snowflakes which I managed to glitter as His Nibs was out, shhhhhhhhhhhhh

So there you have it, remember to pop past the main challenge blog and see the rest of the inspiration from the rest of the team and join in the fun with us!!!

See you soon
