CCT: Pinch & a Punch, . .

. . it' s the 1st of the month! (Blimey, can you believe it's Oct already?!) So this week's CCT theme is to see cards for a 'first something'. Have to admit I got my themes confused - jotted down 'pinch & a punch' and assumed it was to use punches (think I had it on the brain from my ATC yesterday!) However think I have managed to salvage it as I think my card is perfect for 'first christmas as a couple' or something along those lines LOL!
Fancied using some kraft card to go with the lovely vintagey colours/feel of the papers so stamped these adorable lovebirds from WoJ with Versafine ink & dug out my prismacolour pencils & sansodor to colour them in with. Love the effect this gives. Here's a close up of the birdies . .

  • Stamps: 'winter love birds' Whiff of Joy stamp as is the sentiment.
  • Colouring: stamped onto kraft cardstock and coloured with prismacolor pencils & bit of sansodor for blending. Added some clear sakura stardust pen highlights over leaves etc for added shimmer/sparkle
  • Paper: MME signature christmas glitter pad
  • Tools: Labels nestie die, MS heart border punch, snowflake punch. PM flower punch and xmas tree punch used as leaves
  • Others: white distress crakle paint added to edges of image and papers
