Hi There I took a wee break from the Christmas cards...still have several to make. I let hubs go through my bin and pick out the ones he wanted send out...and somehow his list got bigger and my stash got smaller! So I still have more than a dozen to make.
The Penny Black Saturday Challenge for December is Winter or Christmas Card.
I was looking at a wintery/holiday stamp set from Penny Black called Seasons Wishes. There are several Christmas sentiments and also the wintery one I am using tonight. This card will be mailed to hubs while I am in California with my Dad for Christmas and he is with his folks.
This card took a bit of effort. The bird and branch stamps were both colored with markers and stamped several times onto a card panel. (The misti is so useful for this technique.) Then they were stamped with versamark and clear heat embossed. The sentiment was stamped with onyx black in and clear heat embossed as well. Once the embossing was cooled, I loaded a Clarity brush with some Hero Arts Cornflower ink and I added the blue to the card. I wanted a hint of sky without coloring the entire card panel. Lastly, I die cut the panel with a wonky stitched rectangular die.
I think hubs will love the card!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
