Happy Saturday. It's time for a new challenge over at LIM where we want you to create a ONE LAYER CARD with the theme of winter flora. Even though it's summer here in Australia at Christmas time, you can't go past good old Christmas cards using beautiful flora such as holly, mistletoe, and christmas trees (for example).
Here are my cards -
For this card, I used a new stamp called Berry Kissed by Penny Black. I really like the watercolouring technique used with these stamps (incorporating the MISTI) but I haven't really mastered this technique. I decided to try no line colouring by stamping the image with Antique Linen ink then colouring with my polychromos. I went a little crazy with my white gel pen but the end result was okay :) The sentiment is an old one from the HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments.
This card was created using another HLS set called Merry Kissmas. I stamped the Mistletoe and sentiment at the same time using my MISTI. I coloured the image using some glitter pens. Easy!
This stamp is from Sugar Plum Fairy by CAS-ual Fridays. I am embossed the image straight onto my linen card, then coloured the star with a gold sharpie.
We have two guest designers for this challenge - Ankie (our August Winner) and our generous sponsor Bev (from Uniko).
I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Creative Sketchy Girls (Create a Christmas Card), Watercooler Wednesday Challenge (all about occasions),
Card #2 - The Sisterhood of Crafters (CAS), The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge (Anything Goes)
Card #3 - Sweet Stampin' Christmas (Anything Goes + optional stars), Tuesday Throwdown (One Layer Wonder), CAS on Friday (Big Sentiment)
Thanks for popping in today and I hope to see you playing along at LIM :)
