Yet more Christmas cards

I made four more cards since Sunday. This one is my favourite of all the ones I've made recently.

I bought some brush markers recently, not sure if it was a worthwhile purchase or not. I knew I wanted some, but I was thinking of spending around a tenner for ten, if they were available at that price. Instead, I bought 36 for €45, more than a euro each. I was a bit worried I wouldn't get round to using them much, as I seem to have a resistance to stamping. OTOH, that is partly based on having a very restricted range of ink pads. But now I'm glad I bought them. I've used three in this card which just wouldn't have worked with an ink pad - I left a lot of the stamp blank. And the other brown card, with the Christmas trees, has two shades of brown in the stamped image, which I wouldn't have if I'd just bought the smaller set of ten pens.

This is also the first use of the snowflake punch which I bought in a clearance sale in the Donegal based Treasure Bin a couple of months ago.

Glad you like it! Maybe next time I could have some stripey stockings sticking out from under one of the buildings. Then your brane will probably manage to make something else out of it :-)
