Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Extra Mid-July


This challenge will last for the whole month of July 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering 4 digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

For my card I started by creating a night sky. I did this by using watercolour paper. I taped it down to a flat surface. I wet the paper using a wide paint brush, then using a round brush added various random spots of colour – yellow, pink, orange, blue, purple. Once dry, I added the top with black leaving bits of the colour to peek through. I left it dry again, then splattered white ink to act as stars. I used Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. Next I coloured a Bugaboo stamp*, called “WRF Up”  *this stamp has been discontinued. Bugaboo added new stamps monthly, and several times a year discontinue older images. Check out their site, and sign up for their weekly newsletter! I fussy cut him out and added him to my night sky. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
