11 Pipers Piping Artist Trading Card by John Bloodworth Gentleman Crafter

Well that noise isn’t going to grow old very quickly, is it?

Mind you, I’d rather have that than ‘badgers baiting’ or ‘lads-a-louping’, whatever that was. Yes, these were real alternatives.


Carol aside, I should let you know that I used the 12 Days Of Christmas stamp set that came free with Issue 63 of Creative Stamping Magazine.

A line was drawn at the side of the Artist Trading Card and the sentiment stamped in the space created. This area was then masked off and the main design was stamped across the remaining space.

You’ve probably guessed this bit – I used alcohol markers to colour the design in.


Ok, phew, we’re already well into January 2019 and some of you will have been back to work already and there’s only one more day of Christmas to go. 

Are you ready to take on the rest of the year yet? I’m just about ready. One more coffee and then I’ll set off.

See you tomorrow for day 12
