Another 'Different' Christmas Card
This is another Xmas card using an Inkadinkado stamp which is so unlike my normal 'cutesy' cards. I love this English Robin stamp (although mine looks nothing like a robin!!). It's the first time in over a year that I have messed around with inks and lots of different stamps etc and I had great fun and made a bit of a mess as well!!
The robin has been stamped in brown and coloured with Prismacolors and I distressed and stamped a Penny Black snow swirl stamp around the edges (this doesn't show up on the photo very well). The red card has been Cuttlebugged, sanded and then as it was too dark I swiped a white inkpad over the top. I stamped the same swirl over the background paper and added some lace and a flower and pine branches. I have used Glimmer Mists on the bird and the red card but it doesn't show up in the photo and the cream card is distressed and then stamped with a Hero Arts sentiment.
I have just treated myself to a couple more Glimmer Mists and 2 Tim Holtz stamps, so I hope they arrive tomorrow so I can use them over the weekend. Have a good Friday!
Supplies
Stamps: Inkadinkado - English Robin, Hero Arts - Sentiment, Penny Black - Snow Swirl
Tools: Prismacolors, SU Punch, Distress Inks, Cuttlebug, Pearls, Glossy Accents, McGill Pine Branch Punch, Flowers, Lace
DP: Basic Grey
