Funny (but true!) story - I make Christmas cards all year. For challenges, for fun, for no reason at all. When December comes, I don't generally worry about getting my cards done (too many other things to do and worry about!) because I have a stash.
Except this week, a teacher-friend of mine asked me to bring my stash to her, so she could choose a few for her own boys' teachers. And then she passed my stash around and in the end I sold so many cards, that now I AM worried about having enough cards to send to my friends and family!
Last night I sat down and quickly whipped up a few using some new Catherine Pooler products - this was one of my favourites. These inks are amazing - they stamp crisply, but they also blend so well. I love how when you blend these inks, you can deepen the colours around the edges and by leaving the centres of the ornaments lighter, they look dimensional and like they're glowing. To make this easier, I use sponge daubers rather than blending tools - they're smaller and easier to control when blending small areas like these ornaments.
I'm linking up to 3 challenges (click on the photos to check them out):
