a Joyful AmberInk Christmas!

Howdy folks! I've got another fun AmberInk card to share with y'all today. Here you go:


Another example of the versatility of digital images -- this one, from 'Tis the Season to be Pretty, is blown way up to become the focal point on this card. Along with a little Snowflake Lace iPaper, it makes for a festive and quick card (Quick is key these days -- I need holiday cards, stat!)

The image is watercolored with blender pens, plus Stickles accents. The sentiment is from PTI's Big and Bold Holiday Wishes set, and twine is from the Twinery.

{Yes, I took this photo on top of a copy of The Snowy Day -- love that book! Plus, it was on my desk at work, which happens to be where my photo shoot happened. Shhh, don't tell the boss!]

 Oh, here's a close up:


Yes, I'm a sucker for shiny stuff. And watercoloring. Nesties, too. By the way, that off-the-edge placement of the focal point is all designy and stuff, but it really happened because I screwed up the die placement. Ha!

Go craft. I'm gonna go grade, and then craft.  Have a freezing and blustery pleasant day!

No, no, never admit the artsy stuff wasn't totally planned! :P This is such a pretty card, with a great colour combo.

Wow, such a great card! I love your watercoloring--you should do more of it (in all your spare non-grading time, right?). The border and the twine are the perfect touches!
