It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Well it's been a freezing day outside, not getting above -2 all day. My lovely Postie, who is still wearing his shorts!!!!! brrrrr, dropped my Ciao pens through the door mid morning, so after pottering around doing a bit of housework, and my exercises, I put my feet up, and finished off my Christmas cards.  Although I'm still a few colours short and had to use the distress pens again in one or two areas I loved being able to blend the colours. My next challenge is to work on shading and the direction of the light hitting the image.  

These stamps are also from the Michael Powell Urban range by Docrafts.


 My next challenge is to make a Christmas card using a couple of Molly Bloom stamps. 

Happy Crafting every one :-) C

  1. Morning Clare, Yes, it definitely is looking a lot like Christmas. It is a very thick frost here, but due to change at the end of the week, my two cats spend their entire day lying in front of the multi fuel stove, my hubby says they would climb in, if they could ha ha. There are still some posties here too, that still think it's summer brrrrrrrrr.
    I absolutely love this stamp, really love your 'colouring in', there's no doubt the Copics are fantastic and I think they are refillable too, I have seen them being demo'd on C&C and they look fantastic, the blending is seamless too. Keep playing, Clare.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Hi Patricia, just catching up on my mails :-) It's amazing what you can create even with your feet up. I've finished all my cards - there were 30 of them in all, loads of "colouring in"!!!!! Thanks for stopping by again and following my posts. hugs C x

  2. Clare, these are gorgeous. I love the vibrant colors. I'm so impressed...I struggle with coloring. Maybe I just haven't found my medium yet....

    1. Hi Kathy, thanks for stopping by the blog again, and for following my creative bits and pieces :-) I'd forgotten how relaxing colouring can be, as I'm not one who can sit and do nothing unless I'm completely shattered. Hugs C
