As I'm sitting writing this post, the rain is lashing down (just for a change) and it's blowing a gale outside. I'm so sick of the rain I tell you, can't wait for some nice Spring weather.
With it being so cold and wintry outdoors I thought I'd share another Christmas card with you. I made this one whilst with my pals at our regular weekly crafting get together. We all used the same stamp set but each of our cards turned out really differently.
This is one more to add to my stock for this year, I am slowly building up my stock but not meeting my personal goal of making at least two cards each week.
The stamps are clear acrylic and I do find that very detailed images on acrylic are best stamped using Archival ink. I stamped him onto white card, added a little clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image - which adds a subtle twinkly sheen - pretty IRL but difficult to capture in a pic.
After cutting the image out I mounted it on a scrap of SU! Baja Breeze cardstock and used a small strip of the same cardstock to layer over the pretty blue checked paper strip across the middle.
I confess that I added the sentiment once I was back at home, I thought it needed a little something more to complete the design. The sentiment is from a set by Little Claire's and I stamped it using SU! Baja Breeze ink, punched it out with a circle punch and added a little of the Wink of Stella pen on bits of the image. I then attached it to the card with Pin Flair glue to give it dimension.
I do so hope that you are experiencing better weather than we are here in the South West of the UK and to all those in flood warning areas, I hope you manage to stay safe through these storms. Tomorrow I'm due to travel to Mullion for a workshop at Scrapbook Magic, the weather forecast isn't good so we could be in for an uncomfortable journey. My pal Linda is driving so I'll be able to save my energy for the workshop. Wish us Luck !
