White Gel Pen for Christmas (in July)



We have a couple different angel stamps in our Christmas collection of stamps.  The above project features Angel with Flute and Angels Sing Rubber Stamp.  The color of the paper is a light purple which allowed for the use of a white gel pen and light blue marker to color in the wings and robes.  More gel markers were used to color in the flowing ribbons.  The contrast color of the background is gold to match the gold flute that the angel is playing.
  
The card size is an A2, in pearl white.  I added a punched lace design along the bottom and a stamp from the Holiday Grunge Seal Rubber Stamp Set.

The Santa Portrait Rubber Stamp was another excuse to use a white gel pen!  He was stamped on a lime green colored paper and vintage sepia ink was daubed around the edges.  Tis the Season Tickets are the 2 tickets along the side stamped on a beige paper and also daubed with vintage sepia ink.

Why I love creating these projects?
I love how gel pens work so well on dark colored papers to block out the color and make the stamped design stand out.  I purchased a pack of gel pens that include green, blue, red, pink, and purple.  I also (separately) bought a 3-pack of white gel pens and am using them so much that I will be buying more soon!
