"You Better Watch Out...

...You better not cry.

You better not pout - I'm telling you why"...It's the Monday challenge over at the Catch the Bug 'Christmas in July'.

Today's challenge is to create a Christmas project using a 'non-Christmas' image - I went for one of the Bugaboo 'Back to School' images.
I thought this teacher was perfect and in keeping with the words of 'Santa Claus is coming to town'.
This stern madam is enough to convince any child to be good in the run up to Christmas. Who would want to argue with her whilst she has her cane in hand...LOL
The image is coloured using my Copics and then rough-cut and mounted on 3D foam. The background PP is covered in Christmas cookies - no idea of the brand/range as it was part of a stack I picked up in a sale last year. A little bit of bling by way of glitter ribbon (The London line) and some white lace. The sentiment is broken up and mounted on red card and then on a bit of holographic silver card.

I'm trying to keep these Chrimbo cards fairly flat for postage reasons and so far I have managed it.

Not sure how things will go for Tuesday's challenge as the theme is 'colour is Tropical' - should be interesting.............................
