We would like to see ribbon at Winterwonderland this week

Good morning all

It's time for another challenge over at 

Winter Wonderland

we would like to see ribbon on your project
so this weeks theme is

Christmas with a Ribbon

The team were lucky enough to be given a choice of image by our sponsor this week

I chose this cute gingerbread man available HERE

our lovely sponsor this week is 

who will be giving a prize of 2 digis to our lucky winner

I'm still continuing to practice with my Spectrum Noir Aqua pens from Crafters Companion and thought that the slight texture of the watercolour card together with the watercolour shaded effect might work quite well with the gingerbread man, It's a different technique to colouring with alchol pens, much quicker and several ways to do it, I think I did ok - practice is the key here - I'll keep trying, he's not just an all over flat colour and that's what I wanted to  acheive.  I also glittered all the white with glamour dust fine glitter - it looks lovely and sparkly in real life - but I don't think I've quite got it in the photogragh

This is what I did......

I love the country Christmas style of card Judith so this is right up my street!! I know what you mean about the SN Aquas, I keep getting mine out and then putting them away, I have tried all sorts of watercolour paper and card and just can't seem to get it right. I have found Bristol board to be the most successful so far but still not good enough to share!! As you say practice is the key I think xx

Awww he's an adorable gingerbread man Judith!! don't think I would be able to eat him though… he's too cute!! the scrummy papers and embellies are perfect with him! :-)
you've coloured him beautifully... now you've made me want to get my watercolour pens out... can't remember when I last used them.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

Mmmmmm, this tasty looking chap is making my mouth water - lol! I love the country kitchen feel to this card with the Kraft/red combo and that fab gingham paper :-)
