Art by MiRan Facebook Challenge #1 for December - Christmas/Winter Holidays

Good evening and welcome to our first challenge of the month over on the Art by MiRan Facebook group. This fortnight we are challenging you to make a Christmas project or any other winter holiday for those of you that might not celebrate Christmas.

I used one of Mi Ran's gorgeous new images, Eve. isn't she just adorable all dressed up for Christmas in her beautiful red dress. I love this stamp, especially her long wavy hair (although I did find it hard to colour with so many waves! Practice, practice, practise!). And I added real glitter to her fluffy trims rather than glitter glue and it makes such a difference in how fluffy it looks, I think!

I am also entering this in Crafty Ribbons Challenge #108 to make a monochromatic Christmas card (I have the brown hair and a few dots of green,, but it is mostly red and white!), Aud Sentiments Challenge #121 to use their holiday bingo card (I used the centre row to use die cuts/punches, digi stamp and bling!), A Random Fan's Challenge #20 ChristmasKraftin' Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday Challenge, which is an anything goes one, Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge, Crafty Sentiments Anything Goes Challenge, Through The Craft Room Door's Anything Goes Challenge and finally The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Anything Goes with a twist of Christmas Magic! Phew!
