Red And Green Inspired Christmas Card

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The challenge theme is Christmas/Red And Green. I am using an image from one of our lovely sponsors for the challenge, Fabrika Fantasy. 

I am usually intimated by full paged coloring images. With this image, I was having a hard time interpreting the details of the background. I have the option to choose another image but I want to color this image very much because it reminds me of my sister's cats. To help me out in coloring this image, I usually look online for a colored version. Unfortunately, there is none so I reached out to the image artist, Dmitri. He was very nice to send me a colored version of this image, as colored by one of his artists. It was very helpful. Thank you, Dmitri!

I printed the image on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. I colored this full page image with differents mediums of red and green but I primarily used watercolor pencils. I used Finetec Mica Watercolor Paint for the ornaments. 

I die cut a red cardstock for the frame. The die is from Li'l Inker Designs called Fringed Scalloped Rectangle die. I used a craft knife to trim the edges off and make this into a frame. I cut strips of green glitter paper to adhere to the back of the frame. This will show through the fringe as I bend it upwards. 

I die cut a patterned paper using a stitched rectangle die from Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts. I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum using Ranger Red embossing powder. The sentiment is from ME Oh, Kitty Tree. 

As I have mentioned, the two cats on the image were colored with my sister's two cats, Tol & Bibi, as inspiration.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
