I went a bit mad with my Christmas presents and made two cards this month!
I got some lovely new Sheena Douglass stamps and some new Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and Spectrum Aqua watercolour pens. Santa was sooooo good to me this year!
For my first card I used the watercolours pens and glycerine for my background and stamped some tree tops and the little bird which I coloured with promarkers.
I then splatered some Gesso to create snow. The sentiment was stamped then I added some glue and glitter.

For my second card I used sparkle noir pens for my background, along with my Sheena Douglass stamps, promarkers, snowflake stamp and white gel pen for snowy highlights.
I love making these backgrounds but those spectrum noir sparkle pens leave such a mess on my hands. I am seriously thinking of wearing rubber gloves next time!
