Tilda with a Blue Ribbon Heart Scarf

Hi Magnolia Friends! 
 I have another blue Christmas/Winter card to share with you. I did mention before that I LOVE the color blue and I just can't get enough of it! 
It's Christmas in less than 2 weeks! Have you made enough Christmas card to give your friends and family? Well, I have been making flat cards which are faster to make (I think) and I just add a tag for the sentiment...just like this one.

I have made a number of blue Christmas/Winter cards. So last night I asked myself..."Do I really have a "blue Christmas"? Blue meaning a sad and lonely Christmas... I don't think so! I just love the color!

I used a no black lines technique to color Tilda with Ribbon  Heart Scarf with Distress Ink Reinkers.  This technique of coloring is really fun to do but I really need lots of practice.  

 A closer look at Tilda. I used glitter pens to trace the snowflakes

  3. Hello Mae , You made a very beautiful no line coloring card . Awesome . Which one inkt you use it ?! How you do that?
    Thanks a lot .

    1. Hi! Thank you for your lovely comment! I use Adirondack Cloudy Blue Ink to stamp the images. It is a very pale blue but you can still see the image. When I color the image with Distress Inks, the pale blue ink sort of disappears and blends in with the coloring. I hope that helps Thanks for visiting my blog!

    2. Hello Mae , Thanks a lot for your tip a bout no-line stamping.
      I wish you very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with your family.
      Best wishes , Erna
