Calendar Challenge Week 12

Last week of the Calendar challenge at the Craft Barn! The theme is Red and green, pine tree and sparkle.
I was thinking icy white, gold and/or silver.. well I had to rethink and I was not inspired!

The main image has been stamped with a Katzelkraft stamp , embossed in black, then coloured with felt tip pens. I distressed the whole panel with inks and matted it on handmade paper.
There are 2 further stamps (both freebies from a recent magazine) that have been embossed with clear powder directly on the calendar and highlighted with red and green distress inks.
I then used some die cuts around the page, including the tree and snowflake which I glittered in gold, and the holly branch which I "iced" with a mixture of white embossing powder, white/transparent glitter and perfect pearls (I was getting desperate) as shown here:

See you soon for the finale in which I reveal my cover for the calendar...


  1. For non-inspiration you have created a wonderfully inspired page! I think it is beautiful! Well done and I am looking forward to seeing a picture of your completed calendar. TFS!

  2. A beautiful page, the reds and greens look fab against the white background. xx

  3. Fab page and love that holly sparkling in the photo like frost can't wait to see your cover ! x

  4. This is full of wonderful ideas. Great last page. Hugs Mrs A.
