Distress Ink Christmas Cards

Following on from yesterdays post some more christmas cards, but this time using a more traditional look.
All have been stamped with distress inks and then misting the stamp prior to stamping with it. Then once dry pulling out the colour with a damp paintbrush.
These cards came to be as my lovely crafty friend Donna from Inky and Quirky, visit Donna's blog it's well worth the trip, have begun challenging ourselves when we find something out there that we like and then challenge each other to work out how it has been done. These cards are born out of one of those such challenges.
We have both been inspired by Mimi A La Carte whose work you can see here on Facebook
HERE, some fabulous inspiration.
Stamps used:-
Penny Black - Skyline
Penny Black - Woodland Wonder
Memory Box Cling - Forest Pine Large
Sentiments Hero Arts - Miracle of the Holidays.
Crafty Individuals - Santa and Sleigh
also used
Distress Inks
Black Archival ink

Thanks for stopping by at this very busy time of the year.
Incase this is the last post of mine before Christmas I would just like to wish all of my lovely followers a very Happy Christmas and here's to a crafty 2015 to you all.

  1. Very pretty cityscapes, love the perspective and colours.

    Merry Christmas to you too:-) xxx

  2. These are absolutely glorious, Amanda - I love the colours and how you've layered up the skyline to give such amazing dimension and depth. Brilliant! They remind me very strongly of the skyline I fell unexpectedly in love with this year!! And I see I wasn't the only one to yield to that tree stamp in the third card...
