christmas cards

it's about time i posted the christmas cards i made for christmas. for the first one, i used the new snowfall collection from bo bunny. i punched out the snowman using a sizzix die and inked this up. the snowflake is  made from chipboard, painted white and covered in doodlebug glitter (love this stuff!!). i do like the way this turned out, even though it's not your traditional christmas colours!

for the second card, i used one of the techniques tim used in his 12 tags of christmas this year. it's a bit darker than i would like, i think if i use this again, i will use a lighter background paper as the green of the holly doesn't show up enough. anyway, i had fun playing with glassine paper and alcohol inks, i especially love the holly berries entwined with lace and mini tinsel.

i have been missing in action for a while, unfortunately exams and work have taken over and so not much crafting has taken place.

i did, however, make time after my last exam to make some christmas cards and here they are, i wanted them to be quite grungy and so i used the my minds eye 'lost and found' 6x6 paper pad. i am quite pleased with how they turned out.
