AWH HOC Week 16

Hi!

Welcome back to week 16 of The Heart Of Christmas! I'm once again hosting this week's round, as Claire is with her family. I hope you're being inspired by our Christmas cards to get started on your own - slowly but surely Christmas is coming!


This week I have made a fairly simple card, using the new Merry Music SDSP. It's a fabulous pack that I have found my self reaching for over and over again.

How cool is this way to add colour to the DSP? The pack is entirely white and black, but there's nothing stopping you from adding some colour. In this case, I used my sponge brayer to roll on some Garden Green ink. I wanted the ombre look, so I rolled up from the bottom each time, allowing the colour to fade away the closer I got to the top of the card.

Aren't these large sentiments fabulous? I like that this one has a bit of a curve, so it's less obvious if your stamp it a little crooked!

I originally only intended to stamp a few of the little twinkles around the inside sentiment, but once I got going, I couldn't stop!

Thanks for stopping by again. Here's the links to the rest of the team that are participating today. I'm sure they'd love it if you popped over to their blogs to look at their gorgeous cards and to give them a little comment love.
