CPS #39

Here is the card i made for CPS#39. I am having fun trying out the sketches and challenges on all the different sites over the last few days and this one was no exception!! I do sometimes take a very long time deciding what papers to use, and then i have to fiddle about trying to assemble my card in a way that i am happy with, so to have a sketch to work with makes things so much easier!! :)

I have many Christmas stamps from many different companies, but this particular one from Hero Arts has to be my all time favourite. It is a very simple image with a very poignant message, and wherever you are in this big wide world, i wish you Peace on Earth........

For the larger image i took some plain white cardstock and added my colour with a small piece of cotton wool dabbed onto the ink pad then smudged onto the card. Because most of the image is 'silhouette' you don't need to be too precise with the colour :) The smaller image is stamped onto translucent shrink plastic(unsanded! i never bother to sand mine!!) with the colour added in the same manner. The paper is Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding' 6 x 6, HOTP acrylic swirl all stamped with Stazon jet black, Colorbox fluid chalk Azurite and Yellow Cadmium, wooden star button and fine leather twine.


  1. Oh I recognize this Hero Arts stamp & you've definitely done it justice. Gorgeous card. You should also enter your "Snow" card in the Caardvarcks challenge....the current challenge is "hand-stitching" & yours is great!!
