I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toooooes....

Christmas is all around me, and so the feeling groooooows....

This is Titbelsoeur today, showing you 2 Christmas cards.

I made the first one with paint on the gessoed background, and on the Numerical stamp. I stamped my home-made gate stamp with gesso and the snowflakes and Merry Christmas stamps with archival ink. Then I highlighted the words with a white pen.


I made this one on a gessoed background, again, but used alcohol inks. Mixed them and let dry. The next day, I let white paint run down from the top, then inked the pines and snowflakes with paint as well. Stamped the Seasons greetings with archival ink on a phone book page and highlighted the letters with a marker pen.

I hope my cards will inspire you and I am looking forward to reading your comments !
Thank you for visiting, à tout bientôt !
