Two cards and more colouring!



More Christmas cards to share with you today , this first card is a shaker showing a wintry scene, the pool background has been made using the Gina K Waxed paper embossed resist technique (one of my favorites). Both the Holly and the Winter Town stamps are old Hero Arts ones that get inked up every year at this time!  The Holly has been coloured with Zig markers and I have added some Glossy Accents to the berries.The sentiment is from a new HA set that I have used a lot this year called "Holiday Messages and Frames" I shall be entering this at ABNH "Holiday card challenge"  and the Severn Hills Craft Blog "Based on a Christmas song" the song is "Last Christmas " by Wham a favorite that I am sure we will be hearing a lot of soon!


For this second card I have used the Hero Arts "Antique Poinsettia"which I have stamped and coloured with distress markers, using the matching dies I have cut them out and pop dotted onto some patterned paper.  I have also added some gold foil to the background paper, I have just got this and found it hard to get right, I obviously need more practice!! This card is for the a2z scrapbooking challenge "Embellish it".




Hope you are having a good week.

Two lovely cards Sally! I actually think the foil on the second one looks great - you've achieved a super "distressed" look that feels really vintage and suits the poinsettia so well. Love your Seven Hills card entry with that gorgeous waxed effect frame and evocative scene. I must admit, I hadn't noticed the Holiday Messages and Tags set before but I've gone to take a look now and I really like it! So elegant! Great colouring and a super result. Thanks so much for playing along with us this month :)
