Christmas Carols

Christmas Carols

Yes, it is starting to get exciting!
Time to think of the gifts,
the food,
the alcohol...
then there are the parties, the carol singing, the alcohol....
family, friends....and alcohol (lol, yes - just joking)


But seriously...
this xmas card is one that I did in Pan Pastels.
The background was so quick and easy to blend,
I really do need to use these more!
And the beauty of it is that you can just stamp normally on it.

The baubles (Kaszazz) are masked and stamped randomly.
The flourishes go behind the masking too.
The main image is a gorgeous wood mounted stamp that I have had for awhile
and just always looks amazing.

And just a little bling to finish it off for christmas!



Enjoy!
