Yes, I know it seems as if we've only just waved goodbye to the festive season but it's never too early to start making your cards for the next Christmas! That's why the latest challenge from The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT gives you an optional twist to do just that. It's optional though so if you don't want to go down that creative road just yet, the theme for this week is Anything Goes - just remember to use alcohol markers though, that bit is a must!
This will also be your last chance to enter and win a gift certificate from our January sponsor - Aurora Wings so get those markers out and start colouring!
For my card I went back to an old favourite of mine and used a Christmas digi from Teddy Bo. I tried to give him some texture on his fur by dotting a combination of warm and cool grey Copics and kept the colour scheme very simple by just adding red for his clothes. For the background I just wanted a few red paint splats which I made using my new Tim Holtz Distress Stain - I can't tell you how satisfying it is to thwack that sponge tip down and make those lovely splatters! A simple stamped sentiment finished it off.
