Doraline and a challenge...

Hello everyone;
I can't believe it is the first week of June already...where do the days go. Now that it has stopped raining here in Southwestern Ontario, today was nice and warm. I think its is supposed to be nice for the rest of the week, so I am looking forward to it.

This adorable image is Doraline with accordion from Motivet Rubber Stamps.



The colors and papers are very non-traditional for Christmas, but are some of my favorites from Darcie's.
I stamped the image with Versa fine black and embossed it with clear. I painted it with Tombows. I used my Inkssentials white pen for the highlights. I cut the ovals with my nesties and used a MS punch for the bottom border. The snowflakes and flowers are also punches from MS. I used my pinking scissors for the sentiment
cardstock.

I hope you like the colors I have used for this Christmas card, I just can't force myself to do too many red/green traditional combos just yet...they will have to wait until the end of July...LOL!!

*my main source for products is The Rubber Room and online store.



SCRAPMAGASINET Reader Challenge #11

I couldn't resist buying some of these stamps from Scrapmagasinet. I think the images are just too much fun. This months challenge is "Thank You".
I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I made the frame by cutting strips of paper and gluing them together. I sponged some white brilliance ink onto the cardstock. The flowers and fern are made with punches. The dots are Adirondack acrylics.
I purchased the Scrapmagasinet stamps from BunnyZoe's ETSY store.



Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by....
