Christmas Cards and PIF gift!

A week or so ago, I played with my new Angels rubber stamp and made a lot of Christmas cards.  Here they are, waiting to be sent out (we have to write our annual letter to friends so they haven’t gone anywhere yet).

I stamped them on to some of the tissue paper and watercolour paper and then backed them on to coloured paper.

Here is a sheet of stamps on the watercolour paper.  I love how the texture of the paper adds depth and interest to the images.

I also added embossing powder and heated it to add a bit of a shimmer to some.  Then I stamped one of the stamps on to some mulberry paper which I had bought earlier on, a la Andy Warhol…

Earlier this week, I also received my Pay It Forward gift from Shirley

Isn’t it gorgeous?  I love the lights and darks of the dyed fabric – see under the flap…

Wow!  Thank you, Shirley – I really love it.
