Woodware - Coffee and Cream

Another week already at Woodware. Not quite sure where this week went!! Between work, dogs and looking after my husband Graham after his little operation, it has been a particularly hectic week. So another quick card this week. 
The theme this week over on the Woodware blog is coffee and cream. So I have used the Stampendous cling stamp "Wise Men" in this quick Christmas card.



I created the background by blending shades of soft brown dye inks. Then using a music score background stamp (also Stampendous) I spritzed it with water and stamped onto the brown ink. This lifts of some of the ink to give a lovely soft background. 
The wise men were stamped in a dark brown ink. I added a few highlights with a Sakura clear glitter pen and added some pearls.
To get the cream element I stamped a scroll border down the right hand side then embossed it with Frantage Aged Ivory embossing powder.



The detail on the stamp is lovely and needs very little added to it.
Well that is it for this week. There are some lovely samples on the Woodware blog this week. Be sure to check them out if you have a moment!!
