It has been a long while since I'd dipped into my Tilda stamps. I wanted to color this up last Christmas, but time got away from me. I made sure it was the first image I inked up this year. I made a set of three cards. They all are a little different. I think the "Sending you the Warm Thoughts" one is my favorite. Does one grab you more than the others?
I saw a few other people coloring up this image. I'm not sure what the name of it is. It is a really old House Mouse stamp. I've had it years and I had never inked it up. I felt inspired by everyone else and I thought I'd share my take on it. I tried something new with the holly. I added some some blue into the leaves to give it the holly a more realistic look. What do you think?
You all know I'm a dog person. I was so excited that Mama Elephant released a dog version of this Christmas tree. I made the background by splattering white pigment ink and glitter onto a Navy cardstock. The camera never picks up the sparkle. You will have to trust me that this card shines.
Fall is starting to fade here in New York. We are working on getting the leaves cleaned up before the snow falls. This is always an event in our house. We have two dogs that LOVE to run and wrestle in the piles of leaves. As fast as we can rake them up, they are redistributing them. Throw a toddler into the mix and it is nothing short of an comedy act.
