Marleen's Christmas Stocking

 


Imagine That Digistamp is now running a Digi of the month Progressive Freebie challenge again. Yay! Kris' images are always so much fun and delightful to work with. Marleen's Christmas Stocking is a lovely set with the outline and coloured images plus 3 matching papers. Such a generous set. Thanks Kris. Looking forward to playing each month.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers and added some red glitter gel pen. I drew lines on the dress with ultra fine Sharpies to create a plaid effect. I used lots of Stickles glitter glue on the Christmas hat and some star gems on the background and a gold one on the stocking tree top.

I have used sketch 485 from Try Stamping on Tuesday for the layout. 


The base is a sheet of A4 card. For Day 20 at Beccy's Place Month Long Holiday Cards Challenge the prompt is the letter Q so I chose to use a paper from my scraps box which suited this and then added a gold gel pen to look like quilted stitching on it. From my scraps box the middle foiled paper was part of a paper kit that came as a Let's Make Cards kits years and years old. The strip with writing on has been recycled from a Christmas card as was the sentiment which has been cut into a banner shape and matted onto gold card.

I really hoped I was going to be able to complete all of Beccy's challenges but may have to admit defeat. I am suffering with a cold and chest infection and it is wiping me out. I am quite far behind so I will definitely complete them all but maybe not before the end of November.
