We're having unseasonably warm weather for December. Temperatures in the 50's seem like fall or spring. I took an evening off from making Christmas cards to play with some lovely pastel paper that reminds me of spring. This month the stamp of the month is a lovely combination of flowers, jar, and candle with sentiments perfect for thank you or friendship cards. I used it to make this week's Mojo Monday Tall & Skinny Sketch #426:
I stamped the jar and flowers for this one on watercolor paper and painted the flowers with watercolors.
I'm sharing this first card with the following challenges:
Come and Get It - Anything goes with a sentiment
Crafting by Designs - anything goes
Crafty Gals Corner #48 - anything goes
Dragonfly Journeys #33- Thank you
D.L.Art December Challenge - anything goes
Moving Along with the Times #9 - give thanks
Here are two more cards I made with this stamp set and paper pack.
I colored the flowers of the second card using ShinHan alcohol markers. I curved the stamp to curve around the larger sentiment and cut it so the flowers went off the panel.
I wanted the third card to be light and airy to go with the candlelight idea so I chose the striped paper. It was also colored with alcohol ink markers and lightened with the colorless blender.
Here's the inside:
