Pile It On! Challenge - Pretty in Pink and/or Feelin' Blue

I'm back with some more inspiration for this month's Pile It On! Challenge where the themes are:

'Pretty in Pink'
'Feelin' Blue'

We are sponsored for this challenge by All Dressed Up

Prize - 2 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

I went blue this's my favourite colour...and decided to make a Christmas card. I picked a Penny Black chicken image called 'Snowboard Ride', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I added in a slope for him to snowboard down, then carefully cut around the top of the image. I added a snippet of snowy sky paper (from the 'Mystery Marbles' pad by Craft Sensations) behind him, them matted it all on to a snippet of navy card. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous).

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
