My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

20 March 2010

Pretty in Ink

What a miserable afternoon it is, rain, rain and more rain! After a busy morning shopping I managed to squeeze in an hour or so for some crafting and used the Pretty in Ink sketch from their No 2 Challenge which I found was great to work with.

I used my new Magnolia Ink Butterfly Tilda Stamp, thought it would be sweet with the papers! I also used a Sakura glitter pen on her wings and trousers, but the camera hasn't picked this up - the light is not very good today and I ended up taking the picture in the conservatory!

For this card I used:-

  • Magnolia Ink Butterfly Tilda Stamp
  • Wild Rose Studio Greeting Stamp
  • Stampin-Up and Brilliance Stamps with Waterbrush
  • Papermania Pearls
  • K&C Sparkly Sweet Papers
  • Pearlescent Card with Sizzix Texture Plate
  • Die Cut and Ribbon from Stash

I'm really pleased with how this card turned out and love the image, so this one will probably be used on a regular basis now!

Hope you like it!
