FFC18 - Merry Christmas


Time for some mid-challenge inspiration for Festive Friday!



I made this star by drawing a pencil outline of my largest star nestability and then using one stamp from Paper Smooches' Design Motifs to connect each side. I love how the inks overlap and blend. This new Impress sentiment was the perfect size to finish the card off (along with some Stickles for sparkle!)

There's still time for you to play along - the deadline is Wednesday. Hope to see you there!

I'm with others, this card is perfectly executed, the inks look fab overlapping and the look of the card is really modern and fun! If you want to link this to a Christmas card challenge I'm having in my blog, here's a link:

This is fabulous, Ardyth! At first glance, I thought you had done some sort of mathematical equation to get all the points just right...You are so clever! I love all the fun, bright colors and how they blend at each intersection...Very cool!!!

Earth shatteringly original! It is amazing how your brain works, Ardyth. So simple and striking. I don't know how you always get your images to stamp so crisply and perfect?!

You are wicked-talented ... this is an amazing use of a [bubble label?!?] stamp. LOVE the intersections!!
