With 37 days until Christmas, 3 cards made and another 90ish to go I am, confident I will be done by June 2016, so there's no panic.
I've managed 2 cards today. My first card above features stamps from MFT's 'Cool Day' and Paper Smooches 'Joyful Greetings'.
I used a smooshing technique using Gansai Tambi watercolours. If you haven't tried this before, it's a really easy way to create random backgrounds. I watered down my paints just a bit, not too much as I wanted a bolder colour and splodged paint onto a small piece of acetate then smooshed it around my paper.
It looks messy but you get a really great effect when dry.
I stamped out my images & coloured with the ol' Zig-a-Zigs, added a slope & some liquid pearly, snowy highlights.
My 2nd card was made with the same technique and the images & sentiment were from MFT's 'Dashing By'.
See what I mean about these backgrounds, so much texture and colour.
Isn't she a cutie?
There you go, 2 more cards.
Think I've got time to run a hot bath, put my feet up and chillax....Not!!!
