Hello friends! I have been absent from blogging quite a bit this past week. It is mostly the normal fall busy-ness, but also my son was ill and I had to have some dental work done. Unfortunately, I can see that there is still going to be a lot of activities in the next week. But, today is a rainy, dull day, and I think I can get more cards made today.
The first card I made was this Christmas card!
I colored the stamp with alcohol markers. I started with all the details in the Christmas tree. There are carrots, grapes, pinecones, and more, decorating this woodland tree! How cute are all the little animals. I then added Wink of Stella, glitter glue, white gel pen and glossy accents to the details. It looks like it would take a long time to color but it really didn’t.
I masked off the snowy portion of the image, and the edges, and then sponged blue ink for my sky. It looks like it took a long time to color, but it really didn’t .
I matted the image over some pretty plaid paper, using ribbon and a snowflake button to add even more Christmas cheer!
