Gifts of Christmas - a beautiful name for a beautiful stamp set. I have to admit that I only recently bought this set and I only wish that I had bought it much sooner so that I could have used it in my Holiday Stamp a Stack.
I only had time to play with it yesterday - I have to admit that it was very therapeutic to spend half a day stamping for fun having not had the chance to do so for a long while. We're always busy preparing for classes or workshops that there's never time to just stamp for the fun of it but I did get to do so yesterday and it was so relaxing!
This is what I came up with using the dove image from this set. I inked up the image using Real Red, Always Artichoke and Going Grey Markers. I then applied Champaign Mist shimmer paint with a fine paint brush on the dove. It is much prettier IRL (in real life) as you move the card around the shimmer comes through beautifully. I also added small touches of Frost White shimmer paint around the edges of the flowers bordering the stamped image.
On the inside of the card is a piece of Whisper White 4" x 5 1/4" card stock on which is stamped the small floral image and sentiment from the set.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
