Tatty Twinkle .... "it's Christmas" .......

I was a lucky person who got to play with the Tatty Twinkle Christmas stamps (designed by Nikky Hall for Stephanie Weightman) and I realised that I had not shown/shared some of my projects.The stamps are such sweet images and colour up a treat .... and unfortunately I do not colour images as much as I would like these days ..... another thing to add to my "to do" crafting list .....

For the first card I have used Promarkers to colour Tatty. The background is made up of Tattered Lace edge die and bare twigs, with a bit of paper tearing in between. I have added glittery highlights with my GraphIt shaker pen.

The snowflakes in the background are background stamps found on the same stamp sheet. The sentiment is also from the same stamp sheet. You get oodles on one sheet ... at least 10 items to compliment the main image (including a sentiment).

For the next card, I decided to use all the "element" stamps found on the different stamp sheets and created this quick and simple 8"x8" card. All images have been matt and layered on to complimentary coloured card scraps.

All the images have been coloured with distress inks with added sparkle added using my GraphIt shaker pen ... can't live with out those pens now!

A very quick post from me today as have to finish filling the car with all our "stuff" as off to visit my mammy .... so excited as haven't seen her for over a month and not visited Ireland at all this year .... I know, not like me at all.
