Text Tree

it’s unusual for me to post daily but i was determined not to wait until the last minute to play along with the jingle belles for a change. the prompt this time is all about “celebrating fab fonts, lovely lettering and all things terrifically typographic with a prompt we’re calling, “Text Me“.

i used an older kaisercraft stamp inked with versa color on a background i created by brayering distress inks and splattering with twinkling H2Os; of course i had to add yellow stickles to the stars. i made three of this design just because it was a quick and easy card since i didn’t use a coloured image. thanks for popping by.

A Mice Valentine

this is my january DT card for papercraft cafe; store owner marie wanted to see some valentine themed cards so i thought these penny black hugging mice were perfect. i coloured with distress ink pads, as usual, and used plenty of stickles on the flower centre and around the edge of the image. i followed deconstructed sketch #83 by the talented jen shults, who is also having a DT call that ends tomorrow, and i’m submitting this to the really reasonable ribbon challenge of love and ribbon. thanks for popping by.
