Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone

I think this will be my last blog for this year so I just made a quick card to post.

Love this stamp from The Ton called Cozy Poinsettia has this wonderful stamp and a few sentiments to pick from being in the Christas and Holiday flow.

I stamped and heat embossed with gold on vellum then I painted with my Zig brushpens though I dont know if we can call it painting as no water is used in this technique. I lighten the colour using the lightest colour in a colour range pulling the darkest colour that I have just run in one thin line along the edge of the flower. If I want to lighten more and also to add bling I use my Nuvo Shimmer brush pen.

Its really hard to get a decent photo of vellum and the shimmer so you will just have to believe me ok. Thats three cards made for Christmas next year lol.

And with this card I wish you one, and all, a very very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May you all get to see your family/friends and treasure every hug and kiss you share.

Next year, if your lucky the cards will flow, my humour will burst forth and I know, don't be too shocked, but you could even get a card in the mail. 

To all my friends here in Australia and those Overseas I thank you one and all for the lovely cards I have received throughout this year and Christmas. You have all helped me through a very hard year and in extension Elysha too.

Crafty hugs and kisses to you all

How beautiful Aileen! (I hear you on the photo front, with all the smoke around at the moment it's been difficult to get good photos, but I am not complaining we feel very lucky not to be too close to the fires and only getting the smoke) Big Christmassy hugs to you and your family and I'm looking forward to seeing you back here in the New Year x

I love all poinsettias, Aileen, and I just about fell off my chair when I saw your stunning design! It takes my breath away with the glow and schparkle you achieved by embossing it in gold on vellum and coloring it with Ziggies. I love it! I hope 2020 is filled with only happiness for you and Elysha. You deserve it!! Hugs, Darnell
