Going Home for Christmas


The sponsor this week at The Outlawz Color Challenge is Jan's Digi Stamps.  The challenge is to use orange, red and green, but no pumpkins.  Pumpkins would have been ideal for October, but oh well.  I had to get my imagination going.  I chose this car image.  I originally tried to paper piece the gifts.  Ha, that was not happening so I colored them instead.  The image is colored with Copic markers.

The paper was interesting.  It is from Cosmo Cricket.  It had many different colored stripes.  I cut the paper in strips and taped back together the stripes that were in the colors of the challenge.  Even close up you can't tell that they are not one solid piece of paper.  I had to add some gray because no cars had orange, red or green bumpers in that era!  I also added some glitter to the snow.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Jan's Digi Stamps - Anything Goes
Ike's World - V is for Vehicles
The Holly and the Ivy - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles - Snow Far Snow Good
