Piles of presents

I've taken a bit of a break from the de-stashing to make a Clean And Simple Christmas card. The parcel stamp was a magazine freebie a few years ago - it's just a single parcel, but I masked it off and stamped four times to give a tumbling pile of parcels.

Once I'd finished stamping, the fussy pattern on the parcel meant that all the parcels in the pile seemed to merge into one, so I decided to outline each one with a black gel pen - and it looked so effective that I carried on and outlined the ribbons and bows on the parcels too.


I'm playing along with
