Well, I'm getting through my cards from September's Create and Craft shows. After this one there are only two more to show you. Just as well that I now have next month's to work on. As Barbara has already mentioned it on TV, I think I'm safe to say that they include the next three 'Twas the Night stamps. I have a few ideas floating around in my head for them - I just need to get stamping.
Anyway, back to this month's.
I loved the effect that I created on my first PanPastel card and thought it would make a beautiful background for the Noel stamp.
I started off by making a mask of the O and placing it on some white card. I stamped all the little miniatures in Versamark ink, then I sponged over them with Permanent Red, Phthalo Blue, and Diarylide Yellow PanPastels. I then removed the mask and carefully stamped the Noel making sure it lined up with the white area. The star was originally stamped in black but it looked a bit boring, so I went over it with some sparkly embossing powder.
I haven't started them yet, but I think this could be one of my Christmas card designs for this year. I love the bright colours.
