With August fast flying us by, it is time for all of us to get started on our Christmas cards. I host a Christmas Stamp A Stack all through the year, but as Christmas approaches the urgency to be prepared becomes more acute.
For my August class I decided to use an old favourite stamp of an angel combined with the Stars Framelits and the versatile Timeless Textures stamp set.
I love that I can water colour the angel in any colour I choose and then create a background to either contrast or harmonize with the colour range.
The backgrounds are stamped randomly using 2 or 3 of the stamps from Timeless Textures.
The star has been cut out on the Big Shot using 2 framelits at once. I used Gold Glimmer paper for these stars
I stamped on Whisper White card using Archival Black Ink, and then used an Aqua Painter to lightly brush some colour onto the angel. This is a very quick way to add colour.
The angel has been fussy cut and a couple of the lovely string sequins are separated and adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. The variations that can be achieved with the layouts of this card are numerous and it is fun to change things a little for each card. I get bored making the same thing over and over.
