Hello Lovelies! I went to the dark side...I've been experimenting with "messy" coloring lately and I went to town on Tim Holtz's Stampers Anonymous Cozy Christmas Stamp Set...drips and splatters and splotches!! Oh my. :-)
I feel like my card-making is so restrained sometimes that I want to break the mold that I created for myself. I try to do things that feel may initially uncomfortable to explore new ways that spark joy in my card-making.
Sometimes I get everything and the kitchen sink out for a card, but today's project is really focused on stamps, ink and brush! I may have piled on Distress Snowfall Grit Paste Snowflakes in the corner, but who can resist that little pot of yummy texture!
Cozy Christmas comes with two beautiful scenes that are packed with holiday cheer. I can't wait to give the mini Santa a whirl on another project. The Bold Tidings mini is actually sized perfectly for Christmas tag-making, but I love how the modern lettering contrasts and compliments these beautiful vintage scenes.
Full supply list at the end of this post!
Today's cards showcases "painting" stamps with Distress Ink and spritzing for a watercolor effect.
