SPCC #28 and Sketchy Thursdays

Would you send this picture with your Christmas cards? At first I thought no, I shouldn't, but you try getting a photo of all four of us and see how much luck you have! So, this is it. I got 25 copies made, and they're being mailed as I write this. I think anyone who knows us will realize, this is pretty much what we're like!

I decided to use the colour combo from this week's SPCC challenge: Pumpkin Pie, Bordering Blue, and Almost Artichoke. I did my best with matching these colours with supplies from my stash, and had fun with all the painting. Kind of a departure from my usual style. I was surprised at how well these colours went with my photo. Definitely a combination I would never choose on my own. I also used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, although I was just a bit late to enter the contest. Oh well, love the sketch, and the results! Thanks for looking.

Supplies (all CTMH): White Daisy cardstock, patterned paper (reverse side) from Life Delights Level 2 paper pack, Intrinsic Backgrounds My Acrylix stamp set

Other: journaling spot and ghost letters from Heidi Swapp, lace from Prima, Rainforest Green and Squash Blossom acrylic paint from Deco Art, olive bold-tip pen from Creative Memories, photo corner
