Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

For today's blogpost for Katzelkraft, I have made some Christmas cards to say "Merry Christmas" to you all and thank you for your ongoing support ! I really appreciate the visits and comments...
So here are my cards:

Here they are in a bit more detail.

I started out with a piece of 12 x 12 card stock and used a brayer and 3 shades of turquoise acrylic paints to colour it. 

I really love the effect this gives... After it dried I cut the sheet into 4 card fronts and I had still some left to cut some ATC's for another time.

I then used the circles with the stars and stamped it randomly over the cards with VersaMark ink. I heat embossed the images with white embossing powder. 

I then drew a black line all around all the cards. I think this finished them off nicely. I then stamped all the images, coloured them with Copic Markers and cut them out. 

The last thing was to arrange everything on the card fronts, glue it and then glue the card fronts onto the white cards. 

I used stamps of the following sets:
