Merry Christmas

Good morning to you all..........
Well we had a lovely day here yesterday, thought spring had arrived! and now we have woken up to a grey and wet morning, hope this isn't the weather for the whole Easter week end.

This weeks challenge over at Merry Monday is to use lime, turquoise and white, and this is the new sketch challenge over at Happy Little Stamper.
I thought I would try to combine both challenges

I started off by dabbing some turquoise ink, and green ink onto my craft mat, I then sprayed with some shimmer spritzing ink in white, and pressed my card onto it, dried with my heat tool and cut to size.
I then added my sentiment which is die cut from white card, added some sequins and gems, mounted the panel onto my card using foam pads.
The colour is not quite what I expected I would have liked a little more blue but I am happy with the finished results.


  1. Oooh! Love your inked panel with the Merry Christmas die! Thank you for playing in my challenge at Merry Monday!

  2. Very pretty background. I need to try that technique. TFS
