Christmas Fun DT card - Non traditional colours

The theme for the second challenge over on the Christmas Fun Challenge Blog is non traditional colours.
I decided to try a bit of zentangling.
I started by finely drawing the outline of the tree in pencil, then filled the shape with the Cadent pattern. I shaded this with pencil.
The star on top is called Gneiss, and the baubles underneath are called Jetties.
I finished the trunk off with some lines and put a few snowflakes around.
I drew a frame around it but still thought it needed something else, so I stuck the white onto some black card & put some white spots around the black card.
I got the zentangle patterns from my One Zentangle A Day book by Beckah Krahula - it's the first time I have done a larger project using zentangle - hope you like it.

Christmas Fun Challenge Blog DT card

 For my first DT project on the Christmas Fun Challenge Blog I used the Keepsake Ultimate & the Majestic embossing boards. I used the baubles from the Ultimate, embossed onto red mirri board from my stash, added some stickles glitter to the embossed pattern on the baubles. The flower was from the Majestic board, I layered this up using green, red & gold card - I think this does look like a poinsettia, added a little glitter to the edges of the flower & added a gem to the centre. I made a stepper card and used backing paper from my stash. Stamped the sentiment in gold & layered up. Stamped Rudolph, which was a freebie ages ago from Crafts Beautiful, onto some brown card using white ink and added a red gem for his nose. Added a little bow & bell from my stash.
Hope you can come over & join us on the Christmas Fun Challenge Blog.
