Christmas Cards

Hello there ;)
I thought I would put some christmas cards on that I have made as samples for Topaz, now & again I do some work for them for QVC. Each card has different techniques, some of them are simple and some of them have more detail to them.

On this one I have coloured the image with promakers, distress the edges, then used clear thick embossing powder over the image, let it cool then cracked it and inked over the top to make it look aged.

I've used a vintage sepia ink pad to stamp the image onto cream card then, water coloured some of the features of the face to enhance it and then lightly distress the edges.

This is a nice & easy card - with just simple stamping, matting and layering.

Again nice and easy, highlighted the face with some colour, then distress the edges with Tim Holtz ink pads and sprayed a shimmer of colour over but unfortunately you can't see it :(

This one doesn't really show up very well, I've stamped onto textured white card, distress the edge with Tim Holtz, then distress the edges with my scissors and embossed the edges with antique gold embossing powder.

With these two cards above I have coloured the image with promarkers, then distress the edges with Tim Holtz, the love card  has a shimmer of colour over the top but unfortunately you can't see it, hopefully it might show on tv- fingers crossed x

This image has been stamped with vintage sepia on cream card, then using the crackle glaze from the Tim holtz range then I've rubbed over with coloured ink to distress it more.

These two cards are done very simply, the bottom one has been embossed using gold embossing powder, but the colour of the card looks very different to what it actually is, I hope it doesn't look like this on tv x

I hope you like these samples, these stamps are foam backed stamps & they stamp beautifully if you've never tried them give them a whirl :) 

Happy crafting
