Holly Jolly Christmas

Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog
Hi it's Thursday and that means a new challenge from
December's challenge was chosen by Claire and
 the theme is
Create your own background.

 For my Holly Jolly card, to create the background paper I used the holly stamp from the  Christmas Tag Holly Jolly  set which I coloured with promarkers and then using my brushes added pine needles distress ink. I then mounted it on black card. The sentiment is from the same set.
 The doodle doll  is from the  Doodle Doll Princess set, which I added a hat and the Christmas clothes too. I stamped one image drew a hat on her then drew the hat on a sticky note to make a mask stamped the doll over the mask  so i had no top of her head then redrew the Santa hat in pencil and inked it in adding the Holly decoration to co-ordinate with the background.
Thanks you for visiting. 
Hugs xx
