Molly Bloom Christmas

Hi all

I bet you thought I had vanished. Sorry for not blogging. As some of you may be aware I have not been myself of late and finding things a bit difficult. Well I have been trying to take my mind off it and have made this Christmas card today. I have used a Molly Bloom stamped image. I must admit I started to colour this image back in October but only got the hat coloured. I completed the colouring today using my Spectrum Noir Pens from Crafter’s Companion. I stamped onto Neenah Card Stock with Memento ink. I am pleased with the way the colouring has turned out. Practice and advice from wonderful people like Leann Chiver’s, Marcea Watkins, Louise Welsh and Co. has certainly helped improve my colouring technique.

Here’s the card
