Kraft-y Christmas

Welcome to another Digi Choosday challenge, Today I have a fab giveaway, but first to this weeks challenge.

As usual it an ANYTHING GOES challenge, but the team were challenged to use Kraft for a festive make.

I chose to use Kraft card as the background and started by splatting with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paint in pearl white to create a snowfall effect.

I roughly tore some pearlescent paper and edged with glitter to create a snowy ground.

Then using my Silhouette I cut out the cute Reindeer from Festive Christmas and pine trees from Work & Play 5 Festive Holkybobs, I then coloured these with Copics.

I added some homemade gesture paste to the trees and sprinkled with glitter.

Finally I layered on to one of the design papers from Octavia Frosted Winter and stamped a sentiment with Versafine Ink.

Don't forget to pop over to the Challenge Blog for todays discount code and of course see all the other fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Team.

Next week I will be back with a make using images from the stunning Winnie Winterland
