No challenge, no sketch, just another design for my workshop tomorrow!

This gorgeous image 'Holiday Smooch' is one of my newest House Mouse stamps, nice and large at around 41/2 inches in diameter, it really doesn't need much embellishment, so i've kept it simple! :)

Stamped onto watercolour paper using 'Timber Brown' Stazon, and then coloured using Distress & Adirondack inks. I 'squish' the colour onto the inside of the lids by giving them a good squeeze, and then i take the colour from the lid with my waterbrush. This is such an easy way of colouring, and at the moment is my preferred method :)

Basic Grey papers again!! from last years 12 x 12 Fruitcake collection pack, and also Blitzen 12 x 12 for the background. Joy embellishment is Anna Griffin, and some organza ribbon from stash which i've 'frizzled' up a bit with my heat gun!

Go on.... give someone a big kiss today! See you soon :)


  1. Lovely card, Carol. My fave bits are the papers and the cute photo corners. Real designer touch!
