A Christmas Carol

At long last I've motivated myself to make some cards. The first ones I'm posting are being entered into the challenges at

Word Art Wednesday #109  As always an anything goes challenge with the option of using the free scripture that is provided

Allsorts #235 to be inspired by a Christmas song or carol

Divas by Design  Feeling Festive

Papertake Weekly  Anything goes

Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge #287  Christmas

I love this stamp by Woodware, in fact it was a card I saw at a show using the stamp that inspired me to buy it.  I cased the design for the red card and I added Glamour Dust to the rooftops to give a bit of sparkle.  for the blue card I used a waterbrush over the image to give a water colour effect, quite liked this effect so might do some more in different colours. For the green card I coloured it with ProMarkers and used gilding flakes in variegated copper on the roof tops. I mounted it centrally onto a lovely pearlised card which was embossed, pity it doesn't show up on this picture.  I used Memento ink pads to stamp all the images and the papers, ribbon and foam pads from my stash


  1. The stamp is certainly great. The true art lies in your creativity. So different yet all from the same stamp. Thank you for entering this wonderful work of art with us
