No I've not gone mad (not totally!) but this week's CCT theme is 'in the water' and I decided to use 1 of the stamps from my PB '12 days of Christmas' clear set. This was after I was piped to my first choice of stamp by another DT (you know who you are ;/), who have all come up with fab ideas for 'in the water' and you will need to check out but not before you've read to the end o.k?
It's not an obvious or traditional christmas card but I think they make great fun cards and can be whipped up really quickly.
Not much to this card really, I wanted to incorporate the 12 days song so typed it up in powerpoint into a circle and printed straight onto A4 card which I turned into my cardbase.
Then image was just coloured (what little there!) with distress inks and cosmic shimmer (click on photo for close up) and cut and layered onto dp with my circle nesties. Sponged the edge of the circle and the card base with some red chalk to soften the edges. The '7 swans a swimming' come with the set and all the sentiments are seperate to the image which I think is brilliant as it makes them usable all year round.
That's all for now. You can pop on over to CCT now and see the other cards and the fab watery themed candy on offer this week.
(Hope you get the song out of your head . . all together now . .'5 golden rings', 4 calling birds, 3 french hens, 2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree!!!!) ;D
