Happy Weekend everyone !
I have a change from Hummingbirds today - a Christmas design. I love when Fall arrives, the temperatures are cooler so I have more energy and I'm inspired to create Christmas cards. I'm showing one today using fabulous stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I love to create cards with lots of embellishments and layers but with the cost of postage, I need to keep some fairly flat.
The background is the 'mop up' sheet from the background in my last post using Distress Paints and water on my craft mat. Next I added more colour using a snowflake stencil by Memory Box and Distress Ink and then stamped the snowflake around in a couple of colours.
I stamped the bells and sentiment direct to the background with Cobalt Archival Ink and coloured with Prisma pencils. I added highlights with a white pen and also clear Wink of Stella. I also sprinkled a little white & silver embossing enamel and heated underneath.
Chocolate Baroque stamp sets: Snowflake and bells are from A Child is Born. Merry Christmas - I can't find this sentiment on their website but I know that I received it while on the Design Team, I love the font.
Stencils: Memory Box - 'Modern Sprinkles' (which look like snowflakes to me, difficult to see in the photo) and The Crafters Workshop - 'Circle Explosion' with white acrylic paint and probably my 'most used' stencil.
Thanks for stopping by,
