It's after Labor Day, the weather has turned cooler, and the days are shorter. All of these things signal the beginning of Craft Season, which almost immediately turns into Holiday Craft season. All of a sudden, it doesn't seem to early to start working on Christmas cards, and here's my first one.
I used the DoodleFactory Backlit Blooms Poinsettia and sentiment from Starving Artistamps. The poinsettia is stamped with Copic markers. Yes, you can do that! The instructions can be found in the June/July 2010 issue of the Technique Junkies Newsletter.
Starving Artistamps has a whole slew of new stamps out besides these gorgeous blooms. Best of all, Tracey is giving away some of the new stamps as blog candy all month on the company blog. Check it out and spread the word!
