Clean and simple

Working with the Boofle Christmas range is just perfect for the clean and simple effect on cards.
It helps to keep the cost of postage down too as there is only one layer on the card.
I have to admit, no matter what, I always love to come back to stamping or digis..... I love colouring in!

Here are a couple of the cards I made using this technique...

I coloured these in using watercolour pencils, but you could use any medium that you like. And if you're not very confident with colouring in, then please don't let that put you off - what about a bit of paper pieced work instead?
(stamp on lots of different papers and then cut them out and glue them down instead of colouring).....

I'll be doing some video tutorials next year - so please keep an eye out for them.
Is there anything in particular that you would like me to show you? Just shout x
My blog make over is coming on nicely....... I've so far changed the layout, played around with the font and colours, created tabs along the top......... now I just need to re-do my header..... what do you think so far?

I'll be back tomorrow with some more cards to show you.
Happy crafting
