Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge 8

This is my first attempt at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog
The challenge this week is to create a Christmas scene with at least two images
I used Jingle Bells and the Decorated Christmas Tree
I printed these onto plain card and coloured them using my
Letraset Tria Markers
I then cut out Jingle Bells so I could mount them using silicon glue in front of the tree
I added some gems and glitter glue to the tree for effect
Used a bit of some Kay & Co Christmas paper I had left over
and mounted it all on some green card
Loved the Challenge
Thanks for Looking
