Jolly Holly Challenge

The theme for  Mari Ko Creations challenge this time is Jolly Holly which allows for anything Christmas related. I have used the optional challenge image for this one.

Materials used: 

Mari Ko Creations – Holiday Petals Unicorn
greetings light string acrylic stamp from stash
black archival ink
gel pens
Copic pens
white paint stick
snowflake stickers
First Editon Silent Night paper pad
X-Press It card
A5 card blank

The front of the card is covered with a piece of paper from the Silent Night pad so that the glittered tree is in the right place. The string of lights is stamped straight onto the card front and coloured with gel pens.

Holiday Petals is printed on X-Press It card, coloured with Copics and fussy cut then attached to the card with foam pads.

Finally the stickers are added to the light string.

I decided to make my unicorn brightly coloured against the muted background paper. The string of lights was an afterthought having found them in my stash when looking for a suitable greeting stamp. They mirror the lights around Petal’s horn.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
