If you came here from Marg's Blog then you're following along perfectly. I'm sure you saw something fantastic there. You can also start right here and hop all the way around so you can see all of the inspiration. Whichever way you do it make sure to click on the link at the bottom of each post to keep seeing new artwork until you arrive back to where you started.
This stamp set has me thinking about waaaaaaaaaay too many ways that it can be colored or painted or embossed or any other number of creative ideas. Instead of running off in every direction I decided to do the most basic thing. Here's a card I made for you with ink and card stock. There are no fancy techniques or additional tools. It's so easy. I was able to use the majority of the stamps except for two of the sentiments. AND I love the results. It's colorful and subdued all at once.
I used the bell, stocking and present to make the background pieces by stamping the images side by side. Originally I thought those would turn out to be something else, but when you work with CTMH products things more or less create themselves.
Thank you for taking a look. Now it's time to hop over to Kristine's Blog to see what she did with these images. I'm guessing colored pencils!! BUT it's strictly a guess.
