Christmas with Joanne Wardle

Over on the Paper Artsy blog this week it was all christmasy with Joanne making some lovely cards..my inspiration came from day two when she just stamped on grey card and used black white and grey pencils...you can pop over and see it here.

I didn't have that many christmas stamps to choose from (well not that I use anymore) so went with two of Jofy's minis and made some tags..

Here are all six...I just stamped with black versafine onto grey card and used a white prisma along he edges to throw some light..I also added a tiny bit of glitter but don't know if the camera has picked it up or not....I added some black fibres to the top of the tag...

sorry about the poor piccies but it was very bright today and just couldn't get it right!!

So thank you Joanne for your inspiration this week..simple but very effective!!

Thanks for stopping by........................


  1. Wow that makes a change, it being very bright as opposed to dull and cloudy or raining, after all it is the UK - lol.

    Great tags, fab choice of images, love the candle ones and your hi-lighting really brings them to life.

  2. They look terrific, Lin - very effective! I should think this is the kind of technique that the camera doesn't pick up in all its glory, it's a bit subtle. Nevertheless, I think they still look lovely and they would grace a nice pressie under the tree! Julie Ann xx

  3. These are really lovely Lin. I'm really impressed with the results everyone is getting from Joanne's technique. I've not have chance to join in this week and missed it now 'cos DD & kiddies coming any minute for an overnighter ;-)
