Here is the...

...latest progressive challenge - CDACPC20.

The image is by Priscilla Styles and for this challenge she offered it in Halloween/neutral/Christmas styles - as you can see, I went for Christmas (oh what a surprise).
I'm still trying to keep postage costs in mind when making my Chrimbo cards this year so this hasn't been given any bulky embellies. That doesn't stop me matting & layering or adding good old stickles to bling things up.
I used the Papermania Urban Christmas words background stamp and white ink on kraft card to create the main background. The image has been coloured with my Copic pens - keeping to a fairly limited range of colours and aiming at a slightly vintage look without going the full-on grunge route.
I tried to give the armchair an old worn leather look and doesn't that puss look like he's stuffed way too much turkey LOL The stickles isn't showing very well in these photos but it gives a lovely twinkle in real life.

Why not hop over to the CDAC site and see what other folk have come up with.........................................
