ABC Christmas Challenge - K is for Kissing

Hi Crafters,

It's time to share another Christmas creation for the new challenge at ABC Christmas.

K is for KISSING
(Christmas themed of course)

Our sponsor for this cheeky little challenge is
with a £10 gift voucher for one lucky winner.

Digital crafting is such fun to do especially with the My Craft Studio program and I haven't done this for ages so I decided to create the background digitally using a couple of design collections after I had coloured my stamped image.
This makes it very flat for posting too.

Stamped Image - Penny Black 'You're a Treasure'
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Digital Papers - Nitwit Christmas Linen Too,
Just So Scrappy - Ooh La La Comfort and Joy

I snipped around the mistletoe leaves very carefully and pushed the stamped oval underneath so it looks dimensional, it is completely flat and it's just the drop shadows that are creating the depth elsewhere on the card.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Creative Fingers - #109 ATG
One Crazy Stamper - May Challenge
Penny Black & More - ATG with a Stamp
CHNC every Saturday - #282 ATG/Cute Christmas
Rudolph Day Challenge - May Challenge

I hope you are well and enjoying a fabulous day.

Your card looks so dimensional, great effect with the shadows and great work snipping the mistletoe to slip the oval underneath I had to look really hard to see what you had done
