Started On My Christmas Cards

Four Christmas cards each made the same way. First I used a piece of acetate that I cut an oval shape from the centre of with my Scan 'n' Cut. I then placed this where I wanted to do my blending and used the Clarity brushes so I get a nice light blending. I love using these brushes and find them very easy to use. I have one foreach colour and have wrapped a piece of coloured washi tape around the top area of each so I can see clearly what colour they are for.

I do clean then when I am finished with them, not totally but as much as possible on a baby wipe just brushing away excess ink to keep them so they are for light colouring.

I have done light blue for two.

A lavender.

And a pink. For the lavender and pink I cut pink coloured metallic 
cardstock and for the blue silver cardstock.

So easy and pretty with the die cut sentiments from  Stamplorations.

I think I hit the twist on the head with my die cut too :)
