A Pink Christmas!



After seeing some of Shari Carroll's inking techniques I decided to have a play with my Distress inks and some water colour paper, this is the result which I thought looked a bit like twinkly Christmas lights.  A very simple card  as I have just added the die cut bauble and an old Hero Arts sentiment, I am pleased with the alternative Christmas colours.  I am adding this to the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says and also the "Thread" challenge at Less is More.



 I also had time to play with my cute snowman again, I have layered him up on some glitter card for added sparkle.  The sentiment is a really old Hero Arts stamp.

Looking forward to the weekend as we have our family visiting.  Hope you have a great weekend.

Oooh I'm loving that delicate watercolour BG on your first card - it sets the glittery Christmas ornament off perfectly. Such a neat and elegant placement of thread too and thanks for playing along with our challenge at Less is More this week. Sarah

Two fantastic cards! The first one has such a pretty, soft background that sets off the ornament to perfection. I love the bright colours and layers of the second card, and the snowman is such a cutie! Thanks for sharing with us at Less is More :)

The pink and gold combo of your Christmas card is beautiful. The watercoloured background looks fab against the glitter and your fine thread.
Thanks for sharing with us.
