Christmas cards

I've been working on some more cards that I would like to share. Still on the green and red theme but am working on some blues and purples which will be posted on another day.

In this card I used a Penny Black poinsettia stamp and inked with Brilliance ink. This gave a nice shiny look which unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo. Once I had stamped the main image, I stamped again on either side without reinking to give the subtle shadow effect. I have not tried this technique before although I have seen samples by other crafters. I was surprised at the results and I definitely will do this again.

In the second card I stamped the teddy then coloured with Prisma colour pencils blended with Sansador. I used my cuttlebug to cut the circles and oval, added a holly punch-out, some gems and a candy cane button.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
