David .....



Over on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group we have been running a monthly Bunting swap the Dec/Jan theme is Monochrome and this is mine ......

I cut the base from cereal packet card to a template and stamped this with the Tim Holtz stamp in Archival black ink. The reflection in his eye was highlighted with white Posca marker.

A piece of Washi tape at the top, a die-cut word n black card and some black faux gems completed the bunting.  Now on its way to its recipient .....

Year of the Pig .....


Firstly, belated Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year to everyone ... not had chance to say so until now !

This year's Chinese New Year in February is the year of the Pig ..... recently we visited Japan and went to a temple where they were selling these fine ceramic commemorative bells.  They are matt red and are hand painted with some gold leaf embellishment and contain a small ceramic ball inside.

Just love the stylish design and the little black wooden stand and wooden plaque that complete the set.

Holly .....



A CAS holly wreath Christmas card ....




The card blank is 5 x 5 inches and I have die-cut an aperture centrally in the front. The aperture is surrounded with a brown Kraft die-cut which has some green dew-drops on it.




There is a holly sprig with berries layered on the left, the leaves and berries being stamped and coloured with Copic markers.




The cut-out (with a sewn edge) has been stamped with the words 'Have a Cherry & Bright Christmas' has been applied to the inside to show through the aperture.
