Red All Over

i made this very quick and easy card for two christmas challenges and my stash.

copyright linda @ snailzpace.wordpress.com magenta poinsettia paper

the current jingle belles’ prompt is rudolph the red nosed reindeer, with the emphasis on red, predominantly red.

the ABC christmas challenge is Q for Quick layout.

i cut a 12 x 12 sheet of magenta poinsettia paper to make a set of cards but i only got one made so far. i usually spend hours watercolouring an image so whenever i make a quick and easy card, i feel like i cheated so i added a bit of shading with a colour pencil and then i added yellow stickles to the centres. i stamped the penny black sentiment with versafine crimson red ink and it was done.

thanks for popping by.
