Christmas card for a Harry Potter fan

There’s a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and this is my take on it. 

One of my nephews is into Harry Potter at the moment so I chose the image Potter Magical Christmas, colored with Promarkers and a silver gel pen.
The DP is Lawn Fawn and I stamped the bow using a stamp from Avery Elle.

      My fourth Christmas gift tag this year

      I've made this tag for Catch the Bug's Anything But a card Monday post.

      Each year I set myself the goal of making all the Christmas gift tags. Maybe this will be the year I will actually reach my goal?

      This is the fourth gift tag I’ve made so far, featuring a snowman from Bugaboo, placed onto a stenciled background using a Memory Box stencil, blue DI and a brush. I also stamped a Christmas greeting and added ribbon and twine.

        Inkspirational, photo challenge

        We have a new challenge for you over at Inkspirational and this time the challenge is to take inspiration from the photo.
        I was inspired by the colors. I used a never before inked flower stamp with kraft colored ink and I sponged the flowers with orange DI. I also used a brush and blue DI fo the backgound. The flower centres got liquid gold pearls and I stamped a greeting using the same ink as for the flowers. I placed the panel onto a DP from Loawn Fawn, I slit a little pocket for the bottom left corner.

        Please come over to the Inkspirational blog to see what the rest of the crew have made.
