Season's Greetings!



Welcome back to the last day of the There She Goes November release sneak peeks! If you have arrived here from Miss Julie's blog then you are in the right place, if not then please start back at the TSG Blog :D

Today, I get to showcase a fabulous new set by illustrator, Chris Dark called Seasons Greetings. These wonderfully illustrated images are perfect for creating elegant as well as whimsical holiday cards for your friends and family and is a  4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 13 stamps that will sell for $18.



This Santa was water coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a water brush and I don't mind telling you that I took the easy way out with this card ;) I actually water coloured the Santa first and then cut him out and glued him to my sponged background. I didn't feel like masking him off in order to do the sponging so it was just easier to cut and glue ;) Sometimes easy is just plain better :) For the snow, I added some dots of glue with my quickie glue pen and then covered them with warm white glitter ritz sparkles and coated the white trim on the Santa suite with crystal stickles. This Santa shines! :D




Would you like a chance to win the Seasons Greetings stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Seasons Greetings Blog Hop Challenge post.
