Jolly Tree Handmade Stamped Christmas Card

I liked this Woodware stamp as soon as I saw it, it makes a great card with very little else needed. I opted for traditional colors as I also wanted to try out our new Wink of Stella pens.

Jolly Tree hand made stamped Christmas card

I matted red and white card onto an A6 white card blank and stamped the Jolly Tree in black, as the pigment ink takes a little time to dry I used a heat gun to make sure it was completely dry before I started coloring in to avoid any smudges. It's difficult to get a photo that shows it properly but the coloring is done using three different pens, a red Pro Marker, a gold Sakura Gelly Roll and a green Wink of Stella. The Pro Marker is plain red, the Gelly Roll gives a lovely golden sheen and the Wink of Stella gives color with gold glitter in. I am delighted with the Wink of Stella pens, it's great to be able to get the glitter effect without any mess!
I am very pleased with the overall effect, hope you like it too.
