Merry Christmas Dear

By Cards

Hi All,

This is part 2 to my other post today. I used the same techniques for this card (inktense pencils and color blending). This stamp set from Simon is great for sentiments with a play on words. I thought the play on ‘deer’ vs. ‘dear’ was adorable.

Here’s the deer that I colored using Inktense pencils.

I’m hoping to have a few more cards done before the craft show and can’t wait to share them with you soon!

Glad Tidings of Great Joy!

Hi All,

Who’s ready for winter?! Oh man, I am so pumped for winter and all the holiday festivities it brings. In anticipation for the upcoming holiday season I have started to create Christmas cards. I will likely have a new one to share each day leading up to the week before Christmas. If you are interested in any of the cards please leave a comment and let me know! I’d love to hear feedback on which styles, colors, and themes you like!

On to today’s card.

For this card, I wanted to try out some inking techniques and create a snowbank. I achieved this look with some masking and 2 tone color blending of inks. I loved the results of the technique. It looks like it is watercolor with several layers of color, but truly it is a white base with 2 blues.
