The card base was sponged in the centre with Bashful Blue ink using circular motions, and round the edges. Using Pear Pizzazz ink, I stamped the wreath off on scrap paper then stamped again onto the card base (although I forgot myself and huffed so it turned out to be more intense than I'd intended!) The beautiful 'Joy' sentiment was then stamped over the top in Real Red, using my stamp-a-majig for accurate position, and I added berries with a Real Red marker.
I made another card with this sentiment as its focus:
For this one, I stamped the 'joy' in Real Red, then masked it off and sponged the rest of the card with Bashful Blue ink.
I do like the effect of scoring a line where the ink meets the plain card stock and those two little notches on the 'o' were crying out to be decorated!
I'll also be entering these cards into the Less is More challenge where they're asking for any CAS cards and aiming for an incredible 1000 entries!

Thank you to everyone who has been sending get well wishes to my son. He's been so much better today and since his recuperation has taken the form of listening to Queen at top volume, I think it's time he returned to school!
Hope to see you then,
