100 Days Until Christmas
That's right, just 100 days until Christmas and that being so I thought I had better kick myself into gear and get down to making Christmas cards. So here is the first of my cards for 2010.
This is one of Lilli of the Valley's new stamps, she is called 'All Wrapped up'. Of course I have coloured her using Promarkers although I have used a couple of Sekura pens for 'Special' effects that have not been caught by the camera. I used a Souffle pen on her muff to give the impression of fur (fake fur of course because we would never use real fur) and a Gloss pen on the toes of her boots to make them look like patent leather. The papers are K&Co Tim Coffey Christmas and the embellishments are from my stash.
I have gone back to using miri board for matting which is really appropriate for Christmas but I also like it for other cards. I also used stickles on the flowers to give them some extra sparkle.
