For today’s post I created two holiday cards that can be used during the holiday or during the winter season. You can add a sentiment later or leave the card blank to fit your occasion. I never seem to have the right card handy when I need one so often I am looking for a blank card.
Reverse Confetti has some fun images and I mean FUN!!! This bear driving the car screams Richard Scary to me. I love Richard Scary books & illustrations so this stamp was calling my name big time. When I was inking up “Bearing Gifts” I wanted to add flowers for a different holiday spin just in case some of you all are tired of snow lol. When I was finished I added a generous layer of glossy accents on the entire windshield.
To mask off this absolutely adorable image I used some masking tape. I know flowers coming out of the sky like this doesn’t make sense but, cards don’t always have to right? The flowers are from this sweet stamp set.
Such sweet lil penguins from the stamp set called, “Smore Love” … it’s a fun stamp set but, I wanted to add more flowers to my holiday-wintery card.
Sometimes when you don’t have time to dedicate lots of time to your coloring … it’s a good time to pull out the usual tricks … a damp rag with some ink blending solution and white dots with a gel pen.
