A very Chilli Christmas

 If you know our family well, you will know that chillis feature heavily in our lives - Mark grows them, we both cook with them, I have chilli themed jewellery and we even have a string of chilli themed fairy lights on the tree at Christmas.
So it was inevitable that when I found a sheet of chilli themed stamps at Rubber Dance I would fall in love with them! The sheet features many shapes and sizes of chilli, and today, inspired by our Christmas lights and the lovely festive colours of fresh chillis, I've used them as the basis for a Christmas card.

I drew a very faint circle using a die as a template and then stamped red and green chillis around it using one of the smallest solid chilli stamps, then erased the circle and added some stamped outline chillis over the top and coloured them in with red. The sentiment is from an old Studio G mini-set.
