An Un-Christmas Card


Leandra of Paperartsy has been making some fab YT videos which she has been busy posting this week.  One of them is called bumping.  If you want to know more, click here.

So this is my bumped background before I added all the extras.


I lightly stamped the small flower head in the background, stamped the happy with the alphabitties.  I coloured the key keeper with distress ink markers and the water brush, cut him out and stuck him on the background.  Inked the edges with timber brown stazon and mounted onto a folded piece of kraft card to make my non traditional Christmas card as this is what Stampotique want to see this week for their challenge.

I watched the bump video, and loved it, and I love how you've used it here - fabulous bumping, and image over! And also lovely to have a break from being reminded how little Christmas prep I've done...

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
