Mash Up the Past!
Today’s Christmas card is a “Mash Up” from 3 past Christmas cards. I didn’t even realize how similar it was to each until after I was finished! I guess when you like something, you keep going back to it – even if it is subconsciously! LOL
I stamped the pine cone and branches directly onto the designer paper and was a pleasantly surprise with how soft and muted the colors became once they dried. I am glad I had waited for the branches to dry before I added the sentiment. Stamping the sentiment 3x’s helped for it to stand out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a inky day!
