For our final 2019 Challenge, the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge Design Team invites you to do any challenge from 2018. The final challenge of 2018 was to pick any challenge from a previous year, so I picked Nutcracker from November 2017. I used my Cricut Explorer Air and an adorable SVG fine from My Scrap Chick called, appropriately “Nutcracker”. The challenge will run the full month.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – 52CCT44-19 – Technique Challenge – Watercolour

The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge is a Technique Challenge. We would like you to make a card using watercolours. I used stamps from Penny Black – Birches, Winter Branches, Festive Snippets. I first stamped the trees birch trees with Versafine Black. Next, I stamped a row of background trees by Tim Holtz in Sage Distress Ink. Using Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Sage) and water I painted the background trees, birch, and sky. I used a snow marker texture pen for the snow. I added a sentiment and taped the image on the front of the card. I used Ranger’s Tim Holtz Watercolour cardstock

This week the Design Team at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge are looking for a “Sweet Treats” themed Christmas card. I love gingerbread cookies, and also love this adorable digi stamp from Whimsey Doodle – Cocoa with Friends. I coloured him with Copic markers. The sentiment is a sticker from my stash.
