Muse Christmas Vision #44

Hi Everyone,

I have been soooooo busy lately, but I wanted to play along in the current Muse Christmas Vision, where Chris Blagrave made a wonderfully soft Christmas card:


You all know this is NOT my strong point, but I think I succeeded this time. I took my favorite little Christmas tree stamp and heat embossed it in white. then I took my sponge tool and sponged without inking up the sponge, just using whatever color was still on there - that's how you do soft, I guess...
Added the sentiment (all tamps by STAMPlorations) and the bird (Memory box), which I kept white. and splatters - you gotta have splatters!

Here is Chris' card:


It's easy to see what elements I took

So come on and play along! You are going to need those Christmas cards....

Happy Stamping!

Solche zurückhaltende Farben bin ich von dir überhaupt nicht gewohnt. Wie kommt es?
Na, vermutlich wolltest du uns mal verblüffen, dass du auch anders kannst.
Das kann ich verstehen, mich reitet auch manchmal der Schalk.
Deine (frohe Weihnachten dann) Karte gefällt mir sehr gut, selbst ohne - oder gerade deshalb - die üblichen Weihnachtsfarben.
Liebe Grüße

Oh, Cornelia, I think it's safe to say soft colours and delicate sponging are definitely your strong point ... this is just lovely! The 'light' around those trees is so dreamy ... it positively glows! Hugs, Anita :)
