Apologies for the poor quality of the photos. It's dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home so not great for photographing cards.
The background panels were all stamped using Stampendous stamps. The main image, evergreen sprig and pine cone all come from a jumbo cling set.
The main image was made using a brush less watercolour technique with brush markers. Simply apply the pens direct onto the stamp and spritz lightly with water. So quick and effective but still one of my favourite techniques!!
I wanted a card for an elderly neighbour who lost her husband this year. I still wanted to give her a handmade card as I know she loves to receive them, but wanted something a little less jolly!! Hopefully this will fit the bill.
We are having our departmental Christmas get together and Secret Santa tomorrow. I am desperately trying to get into the mood but it's not working!! I think I am definitely becoming a grumpy old woman!!
See you next week.
