DT The Paper Shelter ♥ "Anything goes"

Christmas is sneaking up on us this year too - what better way to start the preparations then by making some christmas cards :)

And The Paper Shelter has already made up some wonderful images to use :)
I've used this lovely couple called christmas carols

I've colored the image with distress ink refills and markers. Before I colored I printed the image on to my aquarelpaper and embossed it with ultra fine blank embossing powder so that the lines wouldn't get greasy when I used the water colors. I haven't used my copics for such a long time that I really struggeled when I tried to color this image. But I think it turned out quite well with distress inks too :)
The colors used to paint the image is weathered wood, walnut stain, black soot, vintage photo, tattered rose.

The papers are Maja design (last years christmas collection). Sentiment from Stempelglede.

The challenge this week at The Paper Shelter challenge blog is "Anything goes" - so an easy one :) Pop on over and join us - always great prizes to win!!

Wow - så utrolig lekkert! De fargene var jo bare alldeles herlige. Jeg liker så godt å sy på kortene, men nå som jeg har kjøpt meg ny symaskin blir det ikke til at jeg gjør det... Det blir jo så forseggjort med noen sømmer her og der. Kjempelekkert!! :-))
