Festive Post ~ Z for Zebra at ABC Challenge

Good morning everyone!

Today is the 15th of the month and we have a new challenge at
ABC Challenge ~ Z for Zebra ( use stripes or Black & White theme).
Our sponsors are Bugaboo and LOTV.

I used LOTV Festive Post and Christmas Grunge Messages for my DT card.
I colored the image in black and white and used striped DP.
The LO is from CLP's November sketch.

This image was colored with Black Soot Distress Ink pad.
I highlighted the background with Walnut Stain DI and shabby white frantage.
I also sprinkled glitters here and there for extra bling.

Designer Paper: Maja Design Vintage Winter Collection, Stampin'Up.
Dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders, Go Kreate, Tim Holtz.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
15mm white church window Guipure lace, 18mm Katherine ivory Cluny lace,
cream medium pom pom trim, natural button twine, snowflake charm,
 Gutermann white top stitching thread, 6mm ivory flat back pearl.

Hi Katie! I'm sorry for not stopping by more often, but it's been craaaaazyat work! Thank you fo all your sweet messages and useful tips.Will keep them in mind! :)
Your card turned out beautifully. I can't believe you did the coloring with Black Soot DI. I have this DI, but I've been sort of scared using it, because I am pretty sure my whole image would turn out as one giant black spot. But after seeing what you did with it I am determined to give it a try. Soon! :) Thank you for the inspiration.
Hugs! xx

Hi Katie,
Hope you've been well. Things have been crazy at LLC over the last couple of months, so blog hopping is a distant memory of the past for me, unfortunately, but today I've taken some time to check out the November challenge entries. Gorgeous card; the LOTV images are so adorable and this is a very interesting amd beautiful colouring. Great take on our photo inspiration collage. Thanks for joining us at LLC for our Christmas challenge.
