Started my Christmas cards at last

I have started making a few Christmas cards using the scraps I have left over in my white card box

Covered in ink but that's normal for me, I  thought these cards would be quick but had to stamp the boots individually as even with my Tim Holtz stamp whatsit I couldn't stamp all 4 together as they made a horrible smudgy mess

For once not a promarker in sight

I used a black soot distress pad with blending brushes for the background
Cardio wellies stamp set I bought years ago & forgot I had
Various foliage stamps & sentiment
A bit of glitter for the snow
Mounted onto a 5x7 card blank

I ended up making 4 in this colourway but i'm going to change the colour of the background for the next batch

Off to make more mess
