Magical Pink Christmas

The idea for my background came from one of the WCMD moodboard challenges at StampNation. The arches of the Hungary moodboard reminded me of my NBUS stencil by Neat & Tangled. I paired it with this cute little bird from Winnie & Walter (Sweet Holiday with Evelin T Designs).

I used CP inks to do my ink blending through the N&T stencil (Scalloped). I stamped the image and sentiment (Sweet Holiday with Evelin T Designs, W&W) in Black Jack ink (CP Designs). After colouring in my image using Copics, I fussy cut the image and popped it up onto my panel using thin foam tape. My stamped and inked panel was adhered flat to my card base using.

I'm linking up my card at:
