Shaped Christmas Card

Stamp: freebie from magazine, 
others: ink pad, MS Scandinavian Snowflake punch, Spellbinder Oval die, Lifestyle Nesting Frame Label 16 die, patterned paper , snippet of green cardstock,bling

Done this card based on MFT Challenge Sketch 494.

I cut the white cardstock with Label 16 die, inked the stamp and after that cut out using oval shape die. Before taking out from the die, I coloured the oval white background with soft pastel in 2 shades of green. Love the soft pastel, better than the distress ink. Finished it off with snowflakes embellishment which were punch out from Martha Stewart snowflake punch. Lastly, added bling bling on the tree.

Nagomi Pastel Art

During the current Covid-19 lockdown in our place here, I have the opportunity to learn some free online painting lessons. One of them is painting using soft pastel. I love the outcome of the pastel. I learned step-by-step painting with pastel.  Though the it is usually done in a square card stock, I chose to do it in bookmark form so that I can use it later.

Christmas Card

Stamp: Penny Black 'The Wonder"
Tools: circle cutter, Faber Castell watercolour pencils, Martha Stewart Scandinavian Snowflake punch, doily, bling, pattern paper

Done this card based on sketch by MFT Wednesday Sketch #491 challenge and I am using Penny Black cute critter Christmas theme clear stamp. 
Pretty easy card to make when I follow the sketch. The stamp image was coloured with watercolour pencils, fussy cut and adhered to a round white card stock cut out from snippet of white card stock using Olfa circle cutter (..which has not seen the light of days for ages..). Added snowflakes and red doily for the festive feel.
