joy and wonder... 21

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 3, 2016 @ 9:17 AM | ,

Happy December! I've been busy creating Christmas cards ~ 'Tis the Season :) Today I have a collection of 5 to share featuring one of my favorite Christmas tree Inkadinkadoo images along with a sentiment from the PTI Holiday Wishes stamp set.
I love the coordinating PTI Ocean Tides ink used to stamp the tree image and the PTI patterned paper. A grey ink was used to stamp the sentiment:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current MOJO Monday challenge:
I've also been working on a few paintings. Today I have a pitcher of Gerbera Daisies inspired by Nancy Medina that was painted on a 12" x 12" canvas using oils for my dear sister Tina:
Here's a close up showing more detailed brush work:
I'm linking this painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
