Happy Holiday Season!

I know, I’ve been neglecting my blog and my google reader of late, but I’ve been very busy creating cards for the Holiday Season.
I must admit I’m not a Christmas kind of person, but I always  succeed in finding a way to give my holiday cards a bit of a twist and in the end I’m having loads of fun creating them!

This year, Stampotique plays the leading part in many of my Christmas cards!
Stampotique Designers Challenge #77 is all about our favourite sentiment and there’s no doubt that my current favourite is the one I used on the following card(s):


Moreover, Stampotique Designers Challenge #78 wants us to use non traditional stamps for Christmas. This cute little hat (featured on the Christmas 5 sided cube) gives any of the Stampotique characters a festive look!


I used Dylusions sprays for the backgrounds and added a bit of texture using golden acrylic paint. The anarchy signs were created using bottle caps and an old credit card. Mink and Little hoo-hoo have been coloured using watercolour pencils.

I’d also like to enter both cards into the Poisoned Peas Please ‘Twisted holidays’ challenge.

With these cards, I’d like to wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season!
