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!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
