Fa La La La La

I recently won a set of Simon Hurley Creates inks on Instagram.  How fun is that!!!  I found them at my door when I arrived home from our 1800 mile Thanksgiving journey to Virginia!

I had previously purchased a stamp set also from Simon Hurley creates- so fun and festive, so set out to create.  The backdrop is a MFT stencil, and I used both of the blue inks. 
Next, I stamped the inks on a glass mat and watercolored the tree and the boy.  The gifts are paper pieced. The musical notes are also in the set.  A little wink of Stella for shimmer and a touch of color to the lights- what a fun stamp set!

I took the time to swatch out the inks on Gina K 110# card, Recollections 110# and Georgia Pacific card in the blues.  I used ink blending tools and tried to go darker to lighter.  I watercolor with inks often (and epsecially when on the road), so swiped inks on using a waterbrush at the bottom of my swatch card. 

Whew- Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is approaching quickly!!!  

Challenges TBA

Thanks for stopping by!
