A Christmas Bauble (by Clare)

Merry Christmas, everyone!  It's that time of year to celebrate again, and the Chocolate Baroque set Pears and Baubles is an awesome one to start your cards with!  The detail on these stamps is so exquisite and fine!  It was a lot of fun, and very relaxing to sit and color all the little spaces!  This is one set I will be using over and over again!  The word "Joy" is from the Chocolate Baroque set, Ivy Trails.  I stamped the bauble in black ink and colored it in with water-based markers, then cut it out close to the outline.  Some little shiny round stickers were placed in the center, on the word 'Joy", around the periphery of the ball, and on the bottom left corner.  I used the smaller ornaments for the inside of the card.

  2. Striking use of the traditional colours on the bauble & I love the gingham patterned paper with it. using the different inks for the baubles on the inside is such a lovely additional touch.
