Christmas in colour!!(by Maria)

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share some more samples with Chocolate Baroque stamps from the Holly Bells/Santa Baby stamp sets and I hope I can inspire you!

The first and second card I made with dylusions inks and a mask. I took red and green, just the usual Christmas card colours. I placed my mask on my paper and sprayed some inks on them and yes what results, I loved them! I used some of that beautiful paper for my background for the first card and for my second card I used the rest of the paper.

To make the ornament and leaves for the first card I took some paper that I had coloured already with dylusion inks, stamped the leaves and ornaments on the colours that I liked, cut them out and placed them again on the background with 3D tape. I took a black fine liner to draw the wires and I took a white gellypen to give some accents.Then I also took some glitter stones to give some more accents to my card.

For the second card, I made the small squares and I also stamped the ornaments on this painted paper. I cut them out, placed them with 3D tape on the squares and background that I made with Distress Ink and the same mask on white paper.

 The background of the third card  I made with dylusions inks again.  I cut out a circle and with the negative I painted the circles on my coloured background with Distress Inks.

I hope you enjoy your christmas card adventures this year!
Have a nice weekend, and don't forget to enjoy!
Greetings Maria xxx
