Platinum Stag

Platinum Stag

This is another card for a fusion Challenge. I love combining the photo and the sketch. Check out both at the bottom of this post. The colours and elements on my card come from the photo and I tried to keep to the sketch in arranging them. I started by stamping the script from Viva […]

Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree

Christmas needs a Christmas Tree Card. So here comes mine, using Tim Holtz’s Tree Bluprint stamp and dies, as well as the tree from his season silhouettes. I wanted an outside scene in soft colours.

Next I die cut the the […]
