Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and Inspiration Blog - Post by Kym - Wednesday 12 November 2014

Yes I know that it is not my normal day for posting on the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and Inspiration Blog.  I posted on Monday but am posting again today as Design Team Member Sylvia is taking a little break.  Hope to see you back again soon Sylvia.
For my Christmas card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Crimson Holly".  Isn't this an amazing image?  I have coloured her with my Graph'it pens and made a pastel background with mixing areas of a yellow Pan Pastel with a blue Pan Pastel.  I have inked around the edge of the image with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink.

The backing papers I was given.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut poinsettia with brad centre, pearls, Katy Sue Designs envelope sentiment and some 15mm double-sided red satin ribbon from Buckwell Craft Supplies.
