Christmas card

Here's one more Christmas card I've finished. It's a Hobby Art reindeer stamp stamped using wow glitter embossing powder in red which I then coloured in with Promarkers and I added some glitter around his feet for snow. The greeting is also a Hobby Art stamp - stamped with red archival ink. I mounted it on some glitter paper before attaching it to the card.


At last.....I've been wanting to sneak a Batman quote into this challenge and finally I've done it....the words this time for the Craft Barn challenge were friendship or journey. I found this quote from the 1960s Batman and even better it's one of Robins holy.....

It is Holy Journey to the Centre of the Earth

I used a big and juicy ink pad in the background and then I mod podged on the picture of Batman and Robin with glossy mod podge. Then I sprayed on the some gold colour bloom spray and I wrote the quote on with a white Posca pen and once it had dried I added some purple rub on paint around the edge of the picture.

Christmas cards

Here are a couple of Christmas cards I've made....

I got this gingerbread house stencil last week and tested it out.....actually worked even better than I thought.....really love the effect. Basically you get two slightly different stencils that you use one and then the other with different colours to get this effect. It's made by That Special Touch. I used distress ink through the stencil is evergreen bough and festive berries. Then I just added a stamped greeting and mounted it on some patterned paper.

This one used a splodge away snowflake stencil with some clear texture paste and then I used silver distress spray stain plus some distress ink.....that must be evergreen bough as well I think and also some gold gilding wax. Plus a stamped greeting at the bottom (from Hobby Art). The paper in the background is patterned as well but you can't quite see in the photo.


It's Craft Barn time again and the words this time are moon or sensation. It was much more easy to find a quote this time.....hurrah! I chose a limerick by Edward Lear.

As usual half the background was already there from excess ink off the previous page and so I added some distress spray stain in peacock feathers to fill in the gaps. Then I used the moon from a Splodge away stenskape which I coloured gold with Viva Decor inka gold and precious metals. Then I used splodge away trees with blue inka gold at the bottom. Then I drew a man in a balloon with a black posca pen and coloured it with metallic molotow pens. Then I wrote on the quote with a silver molotow pen and finally I added some teal and midnight create expressions gilding wax around the edge.
