    Ardyth, I so enjoyed your video. I've not tried no line colouring yet, but you've made me think I should give it a go. I really like the look of this Mondo Holly stamp set & you've created a wonderful card with it. The pop of red with the grey is great! This blog hop by Ellen Hutson has inspired me to start making some Christmas cards early.

    Joy Meadows said...

    Gorgeous coloring and card design, Ardyth! Love the stamps you used.

    Tracey Landt said...

    Ardyth I absolutely love your card! At first glance I thought the holly berries were Nuvo Drops, so your no line colouring is amazing. I found your tips and advice on the colouring very informative and I am off to give this a try. I could see myself mass producing this card for Christmas this year.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration, hints and tips.

    Sue D said...

    So pretty with the gray and white and the pop of red.

    girl with a curl said...

    Oh my goodness those berries really jump off the card. I actually thought that they were covered in something like glossy accents as they looked so dimensional. Your colouring of them is phenomenal! Hoping your day is fantastic. Cheers Donna :)

    Darlene DeSario said...

    Great dimension and idea with the berries.lovely, tyfs!
