Christmascard in Non-traditional Colours

Sketchy Colors have an absolutely lovely sketch out - again!

I loved working with this one.

I decided I'd try to make a christmascard in other colours than the traditional red, green and gold-colours, AND to keep it clean and simple - but still try to give it a christmaslook.

So, I chose green and pink for the maincolors.

The image is Victoria Standing, one of Sugar Nellie's newest digistamps, bought at Funky Kits. Isn't she just adorable???

I coloured her with ProMarkers in pink, green and beigetones - colours I picked up from the designpapers (a 6x6" paperpad I've had for years)
I, myself, was quite pleased with how it turned out..., as Hedda, later that day, came into my room I was SO excited to hear what she thought (of course she had to like it, I figured...)

She was terrified that I even thought of calling it a christmascard - the colours were all wrong (Pink is NOT a christmascolour!) It had far too little decorations and bling and stash - it doesn't even have any glitter on(!)

This was all wrong, and I had to make a new, proper christmascard!

(Of course i did it, and will show that card later today :) )

Well, I think it's cute, and have decided to play in these challenges with my pink christmascard:
Sketchy Colors - Sketch

Charisma Cardz - Cutesy

C.R.A.F.T. Cahllenge - Cute

Here's the card from some different angles:

Inside the card, clean, simple and cute ;)

  5. One thing is that if you are searching for a student loan you may find that you will need a cosigner. There are many conditions where this is true because you might find that you do not have a past credit score so the loan company will require that you have someone cosign the credit for you. Thanks for your post.
