this is the first of the two new stamps Im going to share over next few days
yes ….i got to play early they are Beautiful they really are…. i had a great time colouring these in
the stamps are a fantastic size 9x9cm  very easy to colour with your spectrum noirs which is what i have used
no fiddly bits who is a lucky girl or what ….
so here we go
a mixed winter foliage with berries and pine cone spray

 my card is clean and simple  hopefully to show case the beautiful image
i love trying to let the image speak for it’s self and why not... when you get something so pretty
 i went for a varigated holly and ivy to compliment that splash of rich red berries
 coloured with my spectrum noir pens onto Neenah
matted onto Gold Mirri and an embossed layer of Centura Snow white pearl card
with just a touch of diamond glaze on the berries
the colours i have used are
CG1- CG2- CG3- DG2-DG3- GG2- HB1- OR1- CR5- DR5- DR7- TN7- GB8- EB5-EB8
