Thomas Kincade's Christmas Cottage

I'm an artist!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!! Fat chance of that!! I bet you're thinking, "whoa Jeanie, how long did it take you to do that?" That's what my hubby said. *grin*


Would you believe it took me less than an hour to do this entire card? Seriously, that's the beauty of these Thomas Kincade stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms, all the work is in the stamp!! No lie, you can be just as sloppy as you want with the coloring and it doesn't matter. You're just adding a little color to the background and the stamp does the rest. TRUST ME, order one of these, you won't be disappointed. I want a few more now that I know how easy they are to color. I started by stamping the image in Staz On Stone Gray onto some SU Very Vanilla CS. I colored the image with my Lyra pencils and then blended with some Gamsol. I matted the image with SU Always Artichoke and then added another layer of SU Very Vanilla that I had run through my printer for the sentiment. I punched the bottom edge of this piece with my Martha Stewart border punch and added it to the card base. I finished with this green ribbed ribbon from my stash and there you have Christmas card #46. Ok, don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think of all my hard work!! LOL!!! Have a great day!

Supplies:
Stamps - Thomas Kincade's "Christmas Cottage"; CS - SU Very Vanilla & Always Artichoke; Punch - Martha Stewart; Ribbon; Lyra Pencils
