It's a lazy Sunday today and my big plans are to do some Christmas gift wrapping...I know, hard life right! I prefer to leave the heavy lifting for weekdays, that way I have an excuse to laze around come the weekend.
I thought I would share another Christmas card with you. This one is also on it's way overseas as we speak
I used some of my wonderful new Tim Holtz products to put this card together. The background was coloured with my new Tim Holtz ink sprays Bundled Sage and Pumice Stone as well as some blended ink from the pads. I stamped one of my new Tim Holtz Distress Damask stamps using Ranger Archival ink Watering Can, then splattered some DecoArt White acrylic paint. The corner stamp is from Kaisercraft.
The wreath was cut from Memory Box Frostyville Wreath and coloured with my new Tim Holtz ink spray Shabby Shutters. The holly leaves are from Prickley Pear and the snowflake is Simon Says Stamp.
This wonderful snowy scene with the bird was made from several stamps which I just put together using the masking technique. The bird is from Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose, the branches are from Kaisercraft 13th Hour and the North Pole sign is from TJ Designs. They were stamped using Ranger Archival ink Potting Soil. I coloured the bird with Tim Holtz distress marker Shabby Shutters and then added some snow using my DecoArt Snow Writer.
I got the wooden JOY embellishment from Michaels. I painted it with Picket Fence crackle paint and then antiqued it with Gathered Twigs distress stain. I added some snow using my DecoArt Snow Writer and then sprinkled it with Sparkly Fluff. It's hard to tell in the picture, but all of the snow is actually really soft and fluffy. Excellent for touching!!
I am entering my card into the following wonderful challenges:
