Christmas Card Time

Hi all,
I hope the weather has picked up for all the Brits this Bank Holiday weekend!
It has been raining here most of the day but thankfully has stopped now so perhaps it will just get better and better as the weekend goes on eh?? Fingers crossed.
So another Sunday rolls around and that means time for another challenge at our Christmas Card Club.
This time the host is our lovely Zoe.
Zoe has chosen:
Clean and Simple - A One Layer Card
I don't do many of these but I think I should as it is one of the quickest cards I have made.
I have long been a fan of the lovely Barbara Grey and this card has been made using one of her techniques.
So I inked up stamp (well half of it) - available at Clarity Stamp and then ran the brayer over it.
Then brayered it into position on the card.
Turned the card around and stamped the image again with first generation ink the right way up.
Then using Adirondack "Stream" I used the sponge to add some water to the reflection.

Then stamped the sentiment at the top of the card.
Just added some sponged green around the edges of the card and Voila!!
I'm quite pleased with it I think.
What do you all think?



  1. Wow. That water refection looks awesome.


  2. Very clever use of the stamp to fit the sentiment. And I love the colour. Great card! Christine x

  3. Ooh Dawn what a fabulous CAS card and so effective. Hope the weather gets better, sun shining here just now but for how long is anybody's guess. Hugs x
