Introducing.......Holly Doodles!!!

Blimey.............three posts in one day. I have obviously got nothing better to!!!

I just had to share this card very first card made with one of the stamp sets I designed for TandaStamps.
These stamps are from the Holly Doodles set and are all hand drawn by me. I can't tell you how weird it is to see something you have drawn as a rubber stamp but I am just so happy with them. A huge thank you to Andrew, Tanya and Alex at Tanda.

The scan as usual is the pits as the shading looks very brown when in fact it is green.

Just a simple card. The background is stamped in Olive Green Stazon and then the berries have been painted with Cranberry Adirondack.
Green shading is done with chalk and the speckled effect is done with a Fiskars Speckle Brayer and Memories Soft Gold ink pad.
The holly leaves and berries and the small round tag have been stamped and embossed in gold then painted with Meadow and Cranberry Adirondack.
Chalking and speckling as before.

I do hope you like them. I am thrilled to bits with them and will be working with this and the other set quite a bit over the coming weeks as we now have classes booked at the shop to make cards using them.

Thanks for looking
