Mid month reminder at Penny Black and More Challenges ' Traditional Christmas Colours".

Good morning!

Well, here we are, half way through December welcoming Christmas and almost saying goodbye to 2018!

My inspiration for you for your mid month reminder is a card using another of my favourite stamps 40-557 Starry Tree along with the sentiment stamp 3024F Xmas Spirit and I have used the figures from the On The Town set 30-260.

Keeping with the theme of traditional christmas colours I have focused on my christmas tree and have painted it using green and white acrylic paints. The stars have been painted in with gold Starlights paint and I have added some lovely red Berry Sparkle Cosmic Shimmer drops.

The background have been done using a light blue aqua pen with a touch of glycerin and I have then drawn you in by popping some black Distress Oxide around the very edge.

Finished with some dots of white gesso and highlights along the ground for a bit of snow and a white pen to highlight the figures and parts of the tree.

A perfect card for the younger generation showing two girls that have done their fair share of Christmas shopping by the looks of it!!!!!

Do come over and join us for this months theme of "Traditional Christmas Colours" at:-


This leaves me to wish you a very Happy and peaceful Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. A wonderful scene you stamped, Leanne. Love this!

  2. First of all Leanne, apologies for the late comment. For some reason, I can't comment from my iPad on your blog, and on several others too and this is the first time I've had chance to use my computer at home. Your card is beautiful and the silhouette figures look great at either side of the tree. The tree itself looks beautiful and my card that you made me last year using the same stamp is out on display again here, along with my gorgeous Christmas Robin plaque. Wishing you a peaceful Christmas and all the very best for 2019. I wonder what new crafty adventures might be in store for us? Crafty Christmas wishes, Sandra xx

  3. So sweet and lovely card!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year;-))m

  4. A lovely Christmas card Leanne, love the combination of images making a lovely festive scene.
    Hope you had a lovely Christmas too and All my Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and creative 2019.
