It's time for my Bah Humbug post again this week, and I'm actually slightly quicker this week! I've managed to make my creation on Tuesday, wonders will never cease! The challenge this week was Oldie but Goldie, to use your old stash, an old stamp, or paper, etc. I fished out a lovely stamp by Stamps Happen Inc, which I've never actually managed to use on a Christmas card so far, as it always looked like too much work. I decided to stamp it onto Kraft card, so that I could try colouring with a white pencil for a change. I've seen a lot of this about lately, and it looks great. I used my Coloursoft pencils, and a few Derwent Artists pencils too, to get all of the colours that I needed. I blended everything with Zest it afterwards, and my paper stumps.
I decided to stamp around the edges of the Kraft card with another old stamp by Stempelglede, which I've had for ages. It's from the Grunge Flourish Hearts set. I bought this set before they were available in the UK, and they are just such a pretty set of stamps. I stamped the flourish using my white Adirondack paint dabber.
I then dug out an unused Christmas paper pack from Papermania, that I bought a couple of years ago, and found a page that seemed to tone in with the colours that I had used just perfectly. It even had a sentiment already on the page! I actually made this card with a bad headache, so at this point, a sentiment on the page was a blessing for me.
