Its getting to feel like Xmas !

Still plodding on making my Christmas cards ! This is the first time i have ever made a card with my original watercolour painting on,I was remembering back to when I painted Snow Barns for a cancer charity,and thought maybe i can do some little ATC size ones to put on some of my cards this year,I did this little sepia one then matched it up with papers and diecuts,made a couple of flowers,put some sparkle on the barn roof,suprised myself thought it looked quite nice :) This is the actual card i did years ago,I donated it for charity,they published it for Christmas cards that year

Fabric Wall Hanging

The Challenge for this coming Monday in my local craft group is to create something in sepia colours,I have been wanting to get back to fabric and lace,this is what i came up with,took me all day yesterday I did enjoy myself though :) Its layered onto felt using pieces of lace i had in my stash but had to spray dye with Sticky Fingers walnut,the image is tranfered through my printer with freezer paper,thats the only way i can get a decent image,god knows how my printer survives this lol..........the medalions at the bottom I cut off an old top before throwing it away(recycling lol).I used alcohol inks on the key.When finished i backed it onto hardboard 8"x8" not forgetting to put the ribbon in between first for hanging!
