I'm having another Magenta moment

Evening everyone.
I told you the weather would go down hill after the longest day, well today has definitely been proof of that, sorry.
I decided that today I would try and finish a few things, 'just because', before I got on with the next round of DT things that I have to do.
So with that in mind I managed to get some of the bleach bits from class finished, as well as a pile of cards written and ready to send.
I seem to be going through a bit of a Magenta phase at the moment so here are just a couple of the Christmas cards that I have managed to finish today.
The image on each has been stamped and embossed onto Bazzil card stock  and then painted with undiluted thin bleach.
I have then painted the poinsettia with Barn Door Distress ink.
Some of the leaves have also been painted with Peeled Paint Distress ink and some have not.
I have kept these cards in traditional Christmas colours but there were others that I finished that were definitely not traditional at all. I will share those on another occasion.
I have to be at work at 5am tomorrow so I suppose that I really need to get some sleep even though I am still wide awake at the moment.
I can see I will be in need of a granny nap tomorrow afternoon lol.
Sweet Dreams

  1. Beautiful cards Kim, I do love red and gold:)..

  2. These cards are just beautiful, Kim. I may need to order this stamp :-) Jenny B. x

  3. I hope it is not these lovely Magenta Christmas cards that you have written and ready to send! These look so rich they ar great!

  4. Arghhhh you said the C word and it's not even July yet!

    These are gorgeous though, but I shall pretend they are for winter birthdays and not the dreaded C word as my box of C craft stuff won't be surfacing until at least October and then I shall likely panic and leave it all until the second week of December!

    These are very elegant. That stamp is just gorgeous.
