Here's one made with one of last years stamps that remained un-inked - I think it is Penny Black (or maybe Hero Arts) - sorry, it was lurking out of the packaging pleading to be used....
I used a woodgrain background stamp by Recollections stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink to add a bit of interest to the background. The sentiment stamp was a single stamp, but I snipped the bit saying 'and a' off to separate the words
I used Promarkers buttercup, tulip yellow, lime zest and pear green for the pears, lipstick red, red and warm grey 4 for the bow, and tan, terracotta and spice for the pot. The pears got a coat of glossy accents, and the bow some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen
and I made the partridge red - I am sure they aren't this colour, I have a feeling they are rather insignificant brown birds, but hey, I dressed him up for Christmas.
I know I promised I wouldn't drive everyone crazy with Christmas cards, but time is a ticking and I need to get a move on if I am going to get them all done in time. One thing I am determined though is not to buy any more Christmas stamps, I have a great basket overflowing with them, and I did buy a few Woodware ones from this years collection. No more. Someone stop me!
Right, I'm off to dig out my sensible shoes for all the running around I will be doing in the charity shop this afternoon, see you tomorrow x
