Tuesday Throwdown #252: No Patterned Paper

Good morning, friends! Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. Our theme this week is "No Patterned Paper" and we sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. That means we get to play with their gorgeous digis. If you don't have anything by Robyn's Fetish you can still play along, as long as you follow our challenge theme.

In keeping with our theme "No Patterned Paper" I made a a Christmas card featuring the Christmas Scene 1 digi by Robyn's Fetish, using just cardstock. The image is mounted on foam tape and adhered directly on the a pearlescent brown top-folding card base. I'm keeping the design super simple with just some silver thread for embellishment ... and that is it.

Here's a closer look at the Christmas Scene 1 digi by Robyn's Fetish.  I did most of the colouring with Graph'It alcohol markers. For the background I also used my Caran d'Ache Suprasoft pencils.
