AYLI DT - FAVE XMAS COLOUR COMBO

Morning Everyone,

I'm back again as it's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and the theme for this fortnight is to showcase a project using your favourite Christmas colour combination (and don't forget to tell us why please).

For wintery outside scenes I like either blue and white or lilac and aqua, which is what I have chosen.
I think I've already used this colour combination as a favourite for a non-Christmas card, but it is a combination that looks good for anything.  They are very pretty colours, but also look cool enough for a wintery feel.



The sponsors, Polkadoodles, kindly provided the team with images and I chose Winnie Winterland - Frosty the Snowman.  I coloured them with copics and used retired LOTV Snow Princess paper.  The edges of the papers have had texture paste and glossy accents added with glitter sprinkled on.  

I had a little disaster in that the flower in her hat was the last thing to be coloured and the red pen sprinked on the image!!! Luckily I've managed to get rid of it with the blender pen.  I'll have to be more careful in future.

The lucky winner of the challenge will receive a 3 digi stamp voucher from


so if you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Polkadoodles - Anything Goes
Noor Design - Winter
The Ribbon Girl - Any card
Colour Crazy - Anything Goes
Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes/Christmas

Thank you for visiting and I love to read your comments, they are much appreciated.

Have a good weekend,

Lynne x

This is so pretty and I like how you've kept it so soft and delicate looking. I would never have noticed your pen boo-boo and still can't see it. Why does that always happen at the very end of a piece? I know better than to open my markers over my work but I still do it and occasionally get 'caught'.
