Festive Foliage


 


A simple Christmas card using  a combination of stamp and digital images from Power Poppy, coloured with Promarkers and matted onto paper from Bearly Mine and white card base.

I  say simple but this was my third attempt to line up the stamp with the digital images which I had masked with Masking fluid. I do like the finished card , if it hadn't been for my stamping platform and the masking fluid I would never have managed it though.

Thank you for popping in today I appreciate your time and would love it if you left a comment.

Hi Meg

A great finished card. A lovely mix of digital and physical stamping.

I am with you .. .. not sure how I would cope without my stamping platform now. I love mine.

Eeekkk!! Your Christmas countdown gave me a little shock there! Time is a ticking!!!

Hope you have enjoyed your weekend.

Love Jules xx

Oh what a lovely image this is!! I tried my hand at masking fluid the other day and it was not fun. I think I need to practice more.
