It's a White Week!!

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!! Well, I must be, because this weekend I was in a HUGE white space mood. And that is so out of character for me. I tell ya though, I have even more respect for Silke and all the white cards she makes, because inevitably, I'd just about have a card finished, and the ink fairy would leave splotches of un-coordinating ink colors in random places!! Talk about frustrating!!

With that all being said though, I really did have fun making this week's cards, and am happy with the finished product... (inspite of the do-overs due to the ink fairy) Here's the first card of many this week.

I started off By stamping this charming Evergreen, from the Impression Obsession Clear Stamp set Gift of Love, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and coloring it with Copics. The edges were ink distressed with Antique Linen Ranger distress Ink.


I added some red glitter to the cardinal with my Quickie Glue Pen, and some magical snow with my Liquid Applique Pen. There's a touch of glitter on the snow too.

Finally, I added some buttons, lace and a sweet sentiment from the set Winter View (IO)

That's it for today's card. Be sure to check back each day this week for my "White Christmas" cards. Well, they're not all Christmas cards, but they all have a LOT of white on them.

Have a super week!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
