 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Winter Scenes"
I didn't know much about the Amaryllis so I did a google to see the colors and found that mainly they are red.
So keeping with my theme of making bookmarks this month here are two.
The first one I colored with Prisma watercolor pencils then added a little glitter...easy peasy. Second one is paper pieced and for extra height added foam dots in between the layers.
The card is another simple but effective technique. Did embossing folder for the background, added a strip of decorative paper. Stamped and colored image with Prisma color pencils and die cut a fancy oval.
 Now it's time to check out my fellow design team artists to see what they created. have fun!
