Well I'm making no promises but I'm going to try and get my backside in gear and get blogging again,
Now lets see shall I start where I left off? With a little bit of Christmas......I mean what else would one blog about in July? So how about I show you a couple of samples made with Sheena's new Christmas stamps for 2016? They have a lovely vintage feel, being based on Victorian Christmas postcards and cards and so many of the images could easily be used for non Christmas cards and projects. This first card is a good case in point, the ink well and quill would be great for so many occasions but teamed with some die cut holly and ivy it makes for a sleek Christmas card perfect for business use or with a masculine feel.
Then we go to something very traditional and vintage in feel, I'm thinking Santa might just have nipped out for a cuppa before continuing to write his lists. This was a really simple make; the chair and holly were stamped in Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then the colour was brushed out with a damp paintbrush ( NOTE: damp not wet!!) and then a little extra colour added with watercolour pencils.
