Amber from Kids Craft Weekly never fails to get the creative juices flowing. She's been working on some fab Christmas crafts with her smalls, and since the Doctor and I haven't been getting very crafty lately I thought we might do well to create some Christmas cards.
We set to on some potato stamps, with me wielding the paring knife to bang out a few sketchy designs. Let's keep it simple people. So it was that I carved out a heart, a star, and a Christmas tree which the Doctor kept referring to as the arrow. Ahem.
We kept the palette simple. The Doctor tried to go nuts mixing, but I pulled him up. Usually, I would do no such thing, but I didn't like the thought of posting out some musty/dirty coloured Christmas cards - it really would have been festy rather than festive.
Once the paint has dried we've got plans to embellish our designs. I'll show you those once they're done.
While we certainly won't be giving Hallmark a run for their money, I hope our recipients like our little cards.
