Seeing Red at MAWTT!

Good morning campers!

Hope it is a good one for all of you.

There's another new challenge at MAWTT set by this week hostess

the lovely Laurie

The theme is 

Seeing Red

I'm sure you get the message - very simply we want to see Red - and lots of it

Our sponsors this week are the fabulous Crafty Pad

Now to me this challenge just shouted "Christmas" so that's what I did

I used my very very favourite Lili of the Valley stamp - I think I must have used this stamp more than any other one that I own - lots of Christmas cards have been made with this little lady

I have to confess that I always colour her the same way - red coat and a goldy vintagey colour skirt and  blonde hair, but I use different papers and embellies every time - each ones an exclusive lol!  I might have to ring the changes a bit - that gives me a good excuse to use her all over again this year - maybe I can feel some pale blues coming on.....

This is what I did....

Image - lili of the valley - Christmas dance
Coloured with - copics and prismacolor pencils
Red card - Kanban
Kraft card - QVC
Stripe paper - my minds eye - merry
Die cut corners - spellbinders
Snowflake embellie - Anna Griffin - so old I didn't know i still had it!
Gems and sentiment from my stash
White glitter glue - Martha Stewart

Challenges i am entering

Southern girls challenge - stripes
For fun challenges - stamped images
my mums craftshop - stars

This is a beautiful card Judith - right up my crafting street!! Your papers are gorgeous and you already know I love LOTV images! Your colouring is awesome and I wouldn't colour her in any different colours as these are perfect!
My daughter has just been to Florida Disney she kept texting me pictures to torment me - the one that got me the most excited was her outside Michaels!!! Goodness it's huge!!!!
