I've gone all inky!

My blog background that is! As you can see, I've been playing around with my blog - found this great one that looks very inky! It was on the Blogger Template site. Great fun - I spent ages looking and only got about halfway through! If it keeps changing, you know why!
Thought I'd also show you some more Christmas cards, this time using the Elusive Images Damask Reindeer plate. I love this big stamp as you don't have to do much to create a great card!
This first card is literally stamped onto glossy white card stock and coloured with Memento inkpads. I then added some white pen to highlight:

The second card turned out kind of misty as I used the second impression when stamping. I wasn't worried if it all came out perfectly or not. I then used Adirondack Lights to colour it in.

I've stamped round the edge with the flourish from the Snowflake Flourish plate. The rub-ons are some white ones grom Kaisercraft that I lightly rubbed over with a Vibrant Violet StazOn inkpad to tone down.

Helen you've made my brain hurt! Took me a while to work out how to put a comment on your new look blog!
It looks fabulous and the cards are lovely too. I really like the colours you've used.

I'm glad you said that about the comments Fliss as it's just taken me 5 minutes to work out how to reply! I just assumed they all worked the same way!
