Monday Moment

Today I'm playing along with the challenge at CAS Christmas.

I'm taking the drip drip approach to making Christmas cards this year and gradually building up a bit of a stash. Here's my newest addition:

I know poinsettias are usually red but I fancied a crystal clear white one for a change, so kept my red to the background.

I stamped the poinsettia and then masked it off and popped a circular stencil over it before adding the red ink. A simple sentiment and a layer of Wink of Stella sparkle just finished my card off a treat.

Stamps: HLS, Chriistmas Joy & sentiment from the retired Mixed Christmas Sentiments
Inks: SU, real red; Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, Y13, C3, C5; Wink of Stella clear

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate you taking the time.

And keep crafting!
