I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Pink and Burgundy Christmas Pudding

Well, I've finally made a start on my Christmas cards. I've actually made the grand total of 18 cards. Only about 65 to go!!!

I saw the sketch for this week's Mojo Monday blog challenge and thought it looked really stylish, so I decided to have a go.

I decided to use one of the cute little stamps from the See D's Fun Christmas stamp set, namely the Christmas Pudding image. The image was stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink, and watercoloured using the Whispers Brushstroke markers. The berries were then coloured with a red Sakura glaze pen, the icing with Anita's Metallic White 3D Dimensional paint and the pudding and leaves coloured with Winsor and Newton Iridescent Medium. The image was then matted onto pink and burgundy card.



A white A6 side-opening card was covered with brown star paper from the Papermania Naughty and Nice Christmas paper pad. Three burgundy circles and three pink circles, cut using a standard Nestabilities circle die were attached to a strip of burgundy card to create scallops. A length of pink satin ribbon was attached over the join, and a second length of ribbon tied to it. The image panel was then placed in the bottom right hand corner as shown in the sketch.
