Fab'n'Funky Challenges #151 - A Vintage Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well and the Christmas preparations are coming along.  I'm so behind with my Christmas cards, it's really not funny now! 

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our Non-Traditional Christmas.   We loved all the different colour combos and images you chose.  The winners and Top 3 are up on the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog now so head over to take a peek.

We have a brand new challenge for you too.  We are staying with a Christamassy theme but with a different take...

A Vintage Christmas

A perfect opportunity to pair those vinatage papers with a festive image, just so long as your project follows the vintage Christmas theme.

We have two sponsors again this week - Crimson Cloud and Floppy Latte Digital Designs both with a fab prize for our random winners.  As always we will be choosing a Top 3.

Here is my card for inspiration...

I think my image is rather bright but I love these vintage papers.  I printed them from Serif using the Merry Christmas digikit.  My image is coloured using ProMarkers in Marsh Green, Pear Green, Forest Green, Ruby, Burnt Umber, Canary and Mustard.

I used foam pads for my image and sentiment which came from Lili of the Valley.  Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles was used to cut out my sentiment.  I also coloured my pearls using my Burnt Umber ProMarker.  Very messy but they match perfectly!

Hope you can join us for our Vintage Christmas challenge.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x

I've really enjoyed this card Rachel, it brought back memories if the first Christmas u can remember when I received a candy cane just like this one. It was Christmas 1969!!! Did I really just admit that lol!
