Dynamic Duos #77 & Merry Monday #82

IMG_2970


Slipping in for a last minute Dynamic Duos!
I just love these colours together for the holidays!




I used my new Wink of Stella Brush to add a bit of glitter to the bird's hat. After loading the brush I learned that when they say in the instructions to "gently squeeze" and it doesn't seem to be coming out, not to keep "gently squeezing"--ha ha.  It came out all right.  The effect is really pretty, I don't know how we have managed in the past without these brush pens.  I am also submitting this card for this week's Merry Monday Challenge #82 to use red, aqua and white on your Christmas creations and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge to keep it Clean & Simple!

What a sweet little card! Love the addition of the Wink of Stella pen (mine arrived this week, too; SSS was out of them for awhile!). Perfect amounts of the challenge colours on a pristine snow-white base! Thanks for coming back to play with the Dynamic Duos this week.

Love this...of course, I say that all the time when I see your cards...but I really do. :) I've been catching up on all your latest posts and your cards have been fabulous...and have reminded me that I have just got to get Lil' Inkers stitched mats. :) (P.S. Happy belated birthday...I've been out of town...sorry I missed it!)

I learned the hard way that they aren't kidding about the "gently" squeeze part when a large blob of glittered ink ended up on my craft desk! I love your cute bird - perfect for the colors!
