Matchy matchy in green and red



Here's a Christmascard I made for Simon says stamp. The challenge was to use colour red and green. I bought a whole pack of Christmaspapers a while back and hadn't had a chance to use them so now was the perfect opportunity.

I also worked with a challenge from the promarker challenge. You can use any colours, but you need to have:

3 different shapes (not including the card shape)
2 papers
1 ribbon



I'm not very happy with the way the hÄnglar turn out, but it was fun doing the really "matchy-matchy" image with red and green. I cut out a part of the paper where it said "jolly" and glued on her little sign.

Promarkers used: saffron, cinnamon, burnt sienna, forest green, emerald, berry red and ruby.
