for my cards this year.
I actually started these cards before the Alcohol Ink challenge on the Paper Artsy blog. And I had such fun making them.
The background is created using alcohol ink. It's been so long since I used them - I had forgotten how fabulous they are!
I then stamped the large background snowflake from JOFY for Paper Artsy - this is an amazing stamp! I stamped in different ways so that the cards were all slightly different - some were stamped in white, others in blue. Some were embossed and others had a ghosting image where I removed the ink leaving the white background.
The snowman was stamped and coloured using Prima watercolours. This was mounted and added to the card and a scribbled border created around the edges.
To finish I stamped a sentiment and added a few gems.
I also created some in a landscape design too:
These were really great fun to make.... mainly due to the amazing stamps designed by Jo Firth-Young!
It certainly got me into the Christmas card making frame of mind that had disappeared this year.
Thanks for looking....
