The 21st December was officially the first day of Winter but you wouldn't believe it ! My husband was telling me yesterday that it was the warmest 22nd December since the 1920's !!
It looks as though we can only dream of snow and add it to our cards !!
Here is my second Kuretake UK project for December. Our theme is "Winter".
You can find a full step by step tutorial of how I made this card on the Kuretake UK Blog.
I loved these scribbly birdies as soon as I saw them ! I just love this one and had to make him into a big Robin ! I adore Robins !
I stamped the holly with the Gansai Tambi paint and pulled colour into the centre of the leaves and berries. I love how these paints are so thick and full of colour that you can actually stamp with
them ! OK they don't give that "crisp" impression that inks give but there are times when that isn't needed.
The set of stamps also comes with a stencil so I added snowflakes using white ink and added some sparkle with the clear Wink of Stella pen.
I added splatters of white Wink of Stella to give the impression of tiny snowflakes.
The sentiment was cut from gold mirror card and I added the rest of the sentiment with gold embossing powder.
As I said, you can see a full step by step tutorial on the Kuretake Blog and you can see links to everything I used below.
Hope you have a super Christmas and thank's for popping over !
