Thank goodness for the blender pen!


I was determined to make at least one Christmas card this week, hopefully more than one. I had this digi printed in my folder and I don't know what card I used but not my usual Diamond White from The Papeterie that's for sure. The image almost ended up in the bin as first the green bled and then the red. I used the blender pen and at first it made it worse. Thankfully I managed to save it and very cute they look.
Image - Pollycraft Mouse carol singing
Medium - Copics
Papers - Bo Bunny Rejoice
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Holly - Woodware punch and card candi

What a lovely card.

I didn't understand why a blender pen was needed when I first started using alcohol pens but now it is a must have and I wouldn't be without it.
