Sneak Peek at My Christmas Cards

Hey Groupies!!
Michele here today with more holiday crafting! 
Today I am sharing my 2017 Christmas card design with you.  I am so excited about this stamped scene...oh these Viva Las VegaStamps! images make me SO happy!

So here is the card...then I will share the process with you.

Just a couple of images but  OHHHH do they pack a punch!
STAMPS USED:  Christmas Tree in a Car, Christmas Trees Large, Christmas Wishes.

I started by stamping my focal point in archival ink.

I stamped and cut a mask.

Then stamped the next image.

Then stamped and cut another mask.

The I inked around both images with Distress Oxide inks.

Then peeled off the masks...

I finished up with some water spritzing and splattering of Distress Stain (Picket Fence).  The images are colored with Prisma Colored pencils.

The white space creates the PERFECT snow!

I have been thinking about adding some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen, what do you think?

I am so happy with the color combination and how the images POP. 
Now I better get busy because I have another 24 to make!  I limited myself to 25 of this many cards do you make for the holidays???

Until next time...get inky!!
