Holiday Thinking Inking Week 3 Christmas Card

Morning. Just a quick post before I rush out the door to take Jamie to swimming lessons!!

Today I am going to share a card I made based on Jennifer McGuire's 3rd week of Holiday Thinking Inking Classes over at 2Peas. I am thoroughly enjoying this stamping course!!

So here is my card. Totally different to my usual style, but LOVED putting this together!!

I used the Hero Arts Bird Trio set of stamps for the images. The sentiment I used is from the "Jewelled Tree" stamp set by Annabelle Stamps, and the embossing powder is also by Annabelle Stamps. The snow flakes were cut out using a Cuttlebug die, and I found an old French book in our 2nd hand book shop yesterday, and used that for the paper that the birds were inked on. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink for colouring the book page and for inking the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Remember to stop by on Friday for Annabelle Stamps next fun challenge!
