Craft Barn Calendar Challenge Week 12

The final calendar page. The prompt was red, green, pine trees & sparkle. I stamped the Katzelkraft horloge stamp with Versamark and brushed gold Perfect Pearls over for the background. I thought it was appropriate as we are all fixated on watching the clock at midnight on the 31st December. I coloured in a pine tree stamp from All Night Media with Whispers marker pens, spritzed with water and stamped on a piece of white card. I spritzed again for a second impression and repeated. I cut letters with an X-cut alphabet from gold glitter paper and some pine trees from holographic green paper. I know there's no glitter as such on this page but there is a lot of sparkle and shimmer. I'd like to thank everyone involved in organising this challenge. I've enjoyed it tremendously and have thankfully managed to complete each week on time. It's just as well it's finishing now though because I don't think I can put off making our Christmas cards any longer! When I started I wasn't too sure how I would put the calendar together but by luck I managed to pick up a secondhand Bind-it-all at a good price so I'm going to have a go with that.


  1. It's a cute page, love the golden clock!

    Thank you for participating in this long adventure! It's been a great satisfaction for me to complete the calendar and I really enjoyed the travel so I'm glad you like it, too :-)

  2. This is brilliant! I love all the images...what a clever combination and so chic and colourful! Super!

  3. Great December page (love that tree stamp). I'm with you - haven't made any christmas cards yet! xx

  4. Really like the background (being Scottish always watching the clock on Hogmanay waiting for the bells!)and ties in great with the challenge x

  5. I love the concept of the clock and the stamp itself. Fun page.

  6. Love how you have used markers to do your trees.
    great idea. hugs Mrs A.
