Celebrations at PCP

Phindy's group at PCP is now over 1000 members are the celebrations are in full blow!!
Today there is a sketch challenge and a the prize is a box of handmade Christmas cards made by the DT - how cool is that!

Here is one of my contributions:

I've been trying to play with monochromatic colouring a bit and this card is one of the results. :(

The image from Phindy's shop is coloured with Copics (the whole E40ties range) and Prismacolour pencils.

I tried to make it look as vintagey as I could and was also going for a fairly flat card so it would be easier to mail. I am contributing two cards and made enveloboxes for both, all you need to do is pop the address or just name on and you're sorted.

Sentiment stamp is from Whiff Of Joy and papers are Graphic 45. A lot of Vintage Photo Distress inks involved as well.

I'd also like to enter these challenges:

Copic Creations - blending pen tricks (the texture on coat, sky, soft lines on landscape etc.)
Crafty Pad - Christmas
Fresh Brewed Challenges - Sweet Treats
For Fun Challenges - Color Challenge: Red, Brown & Cream
Charisma Cardz - Vintage
Frosted Designs - Let's See Your Die Cuts!

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
