Kuretake Kristmas

Fancy winning £50.00 worth of Kuretake goodies? Think how many gorgeous pens that would be! The challenge is...

All the info' about the challenge and how to enter is here.

I have made a couple of gifts that will hopefully inspire you to join in. For the Christmas wallhanging above I firstly painted the frame with Distress Crackle Paint 'Picket Fence'. Then using Kuretake Zig art & graphic twin pen 83 (waterbased) I gave my background a wash of colour. Then, using the same pen, I randomly stamped the flowers/snowflakes. I diecut a couple of doiles and snowflakes and again, coloured with the pen. Added card candi and brads to finish.

For my little mini wreath I covered a polystyrene ring with rafia. This time I used the Kurecolor alcohol based pens to colour my diecut tattered pinecones and leaves. I used the Zig Emboss Writer to heat emboss some white powder to give the effect of snow. A little sentiment and some twine to finish. 
The closing date to enter is 25th November. So there's plenty time to join in!
