Well its been a while Bloggers since I've posted - nearly a week! That's because I've been busy playing with my new Christmas goodies from the 2016 Winter Catalogue and I've been having lots of fun. I've had to remind myself that its not actually Christmas for another four months, but I am a bit of a Christmas fiend.
I always fancied having a year round Christmas shop - unheard of in the UK but I was delighted to find one when I used to live in Houston!
Anyway - on to my card which is for the Watercoolers Challenge this week - and Water tricky challenge it is (oops sorry for the pun) its one layer - clean and simple!
I don't have a lot of stamps that could fit this bill of water apart from the little fish in the Jar of Love but I didn't really want to use him.
So I've been playing with the reflection technique with some of my Christmas cards for another challenge I'm doing, revealed later in September so I thought aha, this would fit perfectly.
I've kept it clean and simple - with only the one layer matted onto cardstock. The trees are from one of the new Christmas Sets - Christmas Magic and the wording is from another new set - Banners For Christmas but this card doesn't really look like a Christmas card I don't think. The trees are stamped in Early Espresso and I've used Pacific Point, Night of Navy and an old SU colour Bordering Blue for the blues.
There's a touch of Wink of Stella just on the water part and a little bit on the moons just to make them sparkle. Otherwise just ink and stamps!
As this is a clean and simple card I'm also putting it in for the Less is More challenge - their challenge found here is Blue and Brown.
PS - did you spot my banner at the top of my blog - I'm over the moon to have been asked to join the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew Design Team for the next four months - my favourite time of the year too. Starting in September.... keep coming back to see some fabulous projects from all the Crew!
