I'm using #217 cute cat with balloons digi stamp.....okay so you're wondering how this can be turned into a Christmas card...right? Well here goes - I printed the design onto water colour paper and coloured it in with a selection of watercolour pencils (prisma and faber castell). Next I added white circles randomly over the card with acrylic paint - I used a pen top dipped into the acrylic. I also used the presents from #189 presents and gifts 10 in 1 painted those with watercolours and added some gems to add texture and I like sparkles on my gifts. The tree I made from air-drying clay and embossed it with a rubber stamp before cutting it out with a cookie cutter - let dry over night and then painted with acrylic paint and added glitter. The banner 'Let it Snow' is #226 Christmas Tags and Sentiments. Oh and the santa hat is done digitally because I forgot to make one before I'd started editing (hope I'm forgiven for that but it looks pretty cool).
I hope you like my idea of using a non Christmas design and making it Christmasy.
So as you know I added the digital hat to the cat in the above design well I had a play and did this using Picmonkey which is a free online photo editor. I didn't get time to print it and add colour to the whole design but hopefully it will have given you another option of adding elements to the digi stamps.
Hope you've enjoyed reading my post today.
