Jane the Flower Girl is starting off our week of looking at Traditional Christmas cards, but what does that mean, I bet it is different for everybody.
Remember in the old days when you bought a box of cards and always left one in the box because you really don’t like robins, or what ever it is for you, and that card would turn up in the post from one of your old aunts?
Well it is all different now that you make your own cards, especially if you use a Woodware Stamp!
Jane has used her Skating Snowmen simply stamped them and given them a vintage feel with her choice of colours. Jane has used the Woodware Scruffer to distress the edges and added some colour around the edge.
Of course Jane has added some Stickles to sparkle up the card, and the colouring is Pointillism which we featured last year.
Pointillism /ˈpɔɪntɨlɪzəm/ is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation. The movement Seurat began with this technique is known as Neo-Impressionism. The Divisionists, too, used a similar technique of patterns to form images, though with larger cube-like brushstrokes.
I love this card from Jane the Flower Girl I think that it would be very relaxing to make a few of these in an evening.
Thanks for visiting see you soon!
