Take a look at the S1510 Twinkle (October Stamp of the Month (SOM)) and notice the old fashioned lights! Dating myself here but these were the lights from when I was a kid (you know the ones that set the tree on fire when they got too hot). Fortunately, the light strand in this stamp set won’t do this.
I can’t take credit for the design as it’s inspired by another CTMH consultant. I saw it up on one of the FB groups. When I sent back, I could not find it again so I can’t specifically name the creator. I used our watercolor paints for coloring and then decided to add a little bit of sparkle medium to the paints. Because I was using watercolors, I used our new Z3146 watercolor paper which I love because it’s smooth. Always use paper designed for watercolors when you use watercolor -it will help prevent the buckling you see when paper is wet.
Love that the tag is cut from Cricut again (Artiste) – I tell you my scissor skills are less than to be desired so my tags and sentiments always look great when I don’t have to cut them!! I distressed around the edges with Sapphire ink (one of our new colors).
It’s a fun little card. Remember when you are shopping online and add yourself to the October Online group, you can get S1510 Twinkel for $17.95 (or $5.00 with a purchase of $5.00). Do this and you’ll get another stamp set FREE!! See my give-away page!!!
