Here's my latest Christmas card.
I did this one just for one. I wanted to do a Zentangle and tangle those trees. Do you recognize them? The image is a stamped image--from one of my favorite Magnolia background stamps.
The names of the stamps I've used are:
- Winter Forest all the way back from the Santa Collection 2008.
- Mini Tilda in Cozy Coat from the newly-released Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014
Ughh..I did such a crappy job with the third tree--I'm really really not happy with it! I'll have to try another pattern next time.
Colouring was done with Letraset markers--colours listed at end of posting.
Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Saturated Canary and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey, Wild Rose Studio. Have a look!
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.
This is how I've decorated the inside of my card.
Did a bit more tangling. I need more practice!
