Yesterday Mark and I exchanged Christmas cards. Here is the card I made for him:
He laughed when he saw it - then I opened the card he had bought for me and it was almost identical, only blue where mine is red and with buildings instead of deer! On close inspection we think they've even used the same clip art for Santa and his sleigh on the card he bought as the artist who designed the rubberstamp I used did - the silhouette is identical in every detail.
Well, they do say that great minds think alike!
For my card, I blended distress inks over a square of card, keeping it white in the middle and dark at the edges, then dripped water from a fine waterbrush here and there to make those almost bokeh-like circles, blotting away the excess water. Then I built up the scene using an assortment of stamps, positioneing them well away from the centre so as not to distract from the sentiment.
I used white Brilliance ink to stamp snowflakes and added a touch of Stickles to the snowy ground.
