woodware Design Team Challenge - Traditional Christmas

Traditional Christmas to me means red, green and images that remind us of why we celebrate the season. So I went for greenery, candle and doves. The set I have used is a couple years old but still lovely to use.
I have use Tombow pens for the colouring but not directly to paper. I have scribble a little on a tile and picked up the colour with a wet brush. With this method your colours will always be more intense than if you use watercolour pencils or paints.
I've added a hint of glitter and Mark Richards gems to the corners.
The background is made up of strips of torn red card and a beautiful Magenta vellum. The thin red strip and the panel have secured the vellum to the card.

Why not pop over to the Woodware Blog to see other ideas from the design team
