DT Sketchy Colors - Challenge #51 & DT Unik Hobby - December Challenge

Another Sunday lays ahead of us, and Sketchy Colors is ready with our Challenge #51 - And a new sketch (made by me ;)

This time I've combined my SC Challenge with my December DT work for Unik Hobby.
I got this georgeous PB stamp called "Decorate the season" from Malene, and coloured it with Promarkers.
I wanted to make something different than a Christmas card with it, and made a Norwegian mail-box, following the SC sketch :)
The idea to the mailbox, did I get when I was making the Advent calendar for Ett trykk 05/10 - the Norwegian mail-box system. I thought it would be fun to make a large mail-box to actually store the Christmas cards in :)







Size: 7 x 16 x 22 cm
Stamps: Penny Black - Decorate the Season (Slap Stick - image & texts).
Colouring: Letraset - Promarkers.
Papers: 3ndypapir - Felicia & Nicolas, BazzillBarkley & French Vanilla cardstock, Letraset - Hevywight Cartridge Paper 270g.
Tools: Martha Stewart - Paper Trimmer & Eyelet Lace punch around the page set, EK Success - border punch.
