The last Rudolf days of 2015!

Well, that sneaked up on me! What a shock to realise that I have forgotten to sort out my post for the last Rudolf days of 2015! It was only when Sensei said there was only a month to Christmas that I twigged! I have been a bit busy doing work related stuff this week and will be next week too, so I'd better get it sorted now!

First are a couple of cards using a technique I saw Deby from Inkylicious demo at Doncaster in October. It involves dusting Kraft card with Memento Luxe white ink through a stencil. All stamps and stencils are from Inkylicious. Deby has a new blog up and running  and you can find it here. There are step by step instructions on there for this technique.
Next are some cards I made using Be creative Alcohol based markers. The first uses a woodware stamp...

The second was a freebie digi from Cuddly Buddly many moons ago, backed on Be Creative Winterland papers...

The third is another made with Teri Sherman's wonderful holly and rosehip wreath from Delicious Doodles.

The fourth is non-traditional colours, another of Teri's images, and a background made with another woodware stamp and Be creative glitter glue

Do pop over to Scrappy Mo's and take a look at the fabulous Christmas creations and join in if you can. Thanks, Mo for a fabulous year of getting me organised with my Christmas cards!
Thanks for looking!

  17. WOW! Did you ever get a wealth of very different looks on many cards in quick time. I'm loving them all, but really taken with the delicate looks of #1 & #2 - thanks for sharing the link. I'll try to check out the blog. The ornaments look so delicate done on the vellum over the kraft with the pretty scenes inscribed as you've done them. Of course your coloring is perfection on the other cards...and each is just festive & jolly with the images, colors and wonderful embellies. Hope the work slows down a bit for you, so you can enjoy the lead-up time to Christmas. TFS & Hugs.

  18. Just checked the tutorial, and realized this is stenciling white pigment over kraft. Golly, it truly looks like delicate vellum, so you have a perfect 'hand' on the depth of the ink/stenciling part of this look. It's just beautiful!!!Joined Debby's blog as a new follower and have this bookmarked. Thanks again for sharing.
