I rose to the challenge, downed a couple of sherries (and a strictly medicinal dose of brandy), put on a Christmas CD and produced this joyful number:
|No patterned papers! I'm beginning to like that - makes life easier in a sense. The ol' pear tree stamp is from Chocolate Baroque's "Family Christmas". I coloured it with Promarkers and Graph'It pens. I used 2 snowflake stamps from the same set and stamped on red CS with Versamark to make the background paper. The red gingham papers is some scrap piece I had lying around. I scored 3 vertical lines on the right edge in keeping with the sketch.|
|I inked the edges with TH's Vintage Photo and Antique Lace. On the lower half of the card I applied random dots with a Metallic Silver Sharpie.|
|The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque's "Warm Christmas Greeting".|
