Christmas post

Today I have two versions  of a very minimal card using the new Christmas Post single stamp to show you - the brusho version will follow!

 The first one is coloured with water-based marker pens. The mount is gold mirri card, which is showing very dark on the scan, but it was too dull to take photos by the time I finished this.
This one is on a 5"x7" white card blank.











For the second I tried using small ink pads to colour the stamp - it's not as successful as they were square, and teardrop shaped ones would have been easier to use.
This was cut down to a square, and glitter added. Chunky flakes for the snow on the wall, brown glitter on the tree branches and a finer clear gl;itter on the baubles and ground.
Matts on this one were black, gold mirri and more black, and the base card is white 7" square.

I used the same method to create a tag, just inking up the christmas tree and the using a water brush to draw some of the colour out. . The baubles were coloured with marker pens and glossy accents.


Do keep looking , as the rest of the team have some fabulous samples to show you over the next few weeks.

  3. A simple idea Veronica but very effective and the tag looks very pretty too. The gold, and gold and black on the second card, complement it perfectly. x
