Woodware - Monochrome Christmas

Well folks this week at Woodware we were set with a retailer challenge by Janet from Craft Range in Burnley Lancashire. She wanted people to share their monochromatic Christmas ideas. So these are actually the first two Christmas cards I have made this year. As always I seem to be way behind everyone else!!
I chose this lovely new Woodware single stamp JGS176 Nordic Dove and Branch designed by Jane Gill. I love the simplicity if the design and the fact that it lends itself to a variety of techniques.
The first sample is using a resist :



I chose several shades of blue pigment cat's eye ink pads to go over my resist.


I then finished with a light blue dye ink over the top with then allowed me to splatter some water to make it look a little more distressed.

My second sample is more a vintage look.


I stamped the dove twice, once onto white card and the second on to Kraft card and used a paper piecing technique. I added a little colour with a paint brush to highlight the swirls on the dove.
These were two very simple cards to batch and I hope I have given you a couple of ideas of how to use this lovely stamp.
I am sure there will be lots of other lovely sample on the Woodware blog this week, so be sure to stop by and check them out.

Have a great week!!
