The Holly & The Ivy

As I was packing up stuff to take to Lizy's on Saturday I came across this fab un-inked LOTV stamp (don't ask me why as I've not a clue lol). I thought it would be perfect for this weeks Less Is More OLC Leaves challenge.....


I've stamped it onto Kraft card base and then used ProMarkers (although they don't work for shading well so next time I may print pink petticoat kraft paper and then stamp onto that) and then shaded with my polychromo pencils....  The sentiment is also from LOTV


Inspiration:
Less Is More: #41 Leaves (OLC)
Christmas Card Challenges: #50 Holly or Wreaths


Card Recipe:
Image: LOTV Holly Bough
ProMarkers ( selection of greens and reds... sorry forgot to write them down)
Twine: Ribbon Girl

Have a great Monday... I've got a short week as off to Scotland on Thursday... Just hope it doesn't snow..
