Christmas at Stamps and Stencils

Hello lovelies! How are you? I am well and happy and feeling a bit like a swan ...gliding gracefully along on the surface but actually frantically paddling to keep afloat! Still, soon be holiday time - really looking forward to it!

Today is the time for a new challenge over at stamps and stencils. The theme is Christmas so it couldn't be easier! Here's my mixed media card... I started with an gelli print made using acrylic paint.


Next I used a stencil from indigoblu and iced spruce distress ink...


Next to stamping - I used one from the cover of craft stamper and then two from a last years tim holtz set...


Finally I added a paper doll from TH... I do hope you like it!

I hope you can join our challenge.

Big hugs

Rachel xx

  9. Love your wintry card - those layers in the background give the impression of swirling snow, and the colours are really pretty too. Hope you can paddle a little less frantically soon, and enjoy gliding towards Christmas.
