A Christmas card
I saw this image on Katys Bloggeroo earlier last week and just loved the image so I took myself off to Mos Digital pencil and made a few purchases - I think you may see more of Mos work here over the next few weeks LOL.
I knew I had the perfect stamp to accompany this image and had also I had bought a set of basic grey wassail from last year in 12 x 12 so thats where I began.
Ive added a paperartsy stamp which has all the things I just love love love about Christmas on it! Thats been stamped in fired brick distress ink. The edges have all been coloured using this too.
Image is coloured using promarkers - I love the richness of the colours Ruby and Marsh green so was pleased they went well with the papers.
Ive added the bow and large bell so the card really does Jingle!
Loved making this and have come over all Christmassy - maybe knowing that today is the last Bank Holiday before Christmas arrives has set me off or maybe its the colours and the image in the card - anyway Ive done 3 more similar to this so am on my way with the Christmas card list!
Hope the sun is shining where you are today xx
