Medley of Holly Wreath

I have a Christmas card to share today.

I love a wreath on a Christmas card and Holly in general.

I used a very simple Holly stamp and embossed it onto a variety of cardstock and patterned papers.  I created the wreath with the addition of some Holly die cuts in felt and foam.

I used a further Holly branch stamp and embossed in clear onto white for a very subtle background to the wreath and matted onto co-ordinated card layers.

Lastly, using the same Holly branch I stamped an impression into some air dry clay and painted using shades of green.

I need to add a greeting onto the clay but I was too excited to share.

Hope you like it!

Have a good weekend.

Remembrance Day

Hello

I am wearing my poppies today with pride; red and mauve to remember all the soldiers and all the animals too.

Today I would love to share a card I made using stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

I like this card because my little boy helped make the background for the stamping using the trusty shaving foam technique.

Zentangle Mandala

Hello

I have another zentangle design to share today.

I normally use an outline shape of an animal or bird as a starting point, so doing a mandala shape was quite different.

I love the way it evolved into this shape.

I went a little “dotty”, adding dots everywhere for shade and interest. It was very time consuming but very effective and like any zentangle, it was very relaxing.

The result of a very relaxing evening.

Thanks for stopping by.

See you again soon.
