Merry Kissmas

We may have just welcomed Spring here in New Zealand, but I'm still loving making Christmas cards! This one might just be my fav of the bunch - I got a nice parcel from MFT recently and this little cutie was begging to be inked up.

Once again Jennifer has a great sketch for us, I always love the look of a circle inside a square, and those long panels are great for showing off some designer paper.

My colour combo for this card was Soft Sky, Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink and Kiwi Kiss. I used a bunch of techniques on the focal image, here's a close-up....
The colouring was done with Watercolour Wonder Crayons. Clothes were paper pieced. I used Liquid Applique for the fluffy trims, Two-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter added some sparkle to the snow. The edges were sponged with Soft Sky and the mistletoe got a coating of Crystal Effects.
Inside the card I've used more designer paper, this is from the Eskimo Kisses pack by Basic Grey. I love that dash of pink for a Christmas card! The sentiment is from the new Occasional Quotes hostess set.

Head on over to see the samples from the oh-so talented OCC Sketch team!
