The Christmas Season....
is near! I really enjoyed working with this week's Sweet Stop Sketch.. but as I think I mentioned I was bit ambivalent about my card.. so I decided to try another one. I like this one much better. Lucky for me I had a Christmas image around... now I can officially say that I've started working on my Christmas cards :-) This card used the Season of Love set by Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I love silhouette images... I mean y'all know I love to color, but there is something so cool about silhouettes! I inked the image with Versamark and then inked over it with Memento Potters Clay. Once stamped, I covered it with clear embossing powder and VOILA.. Potters Clay embossing without a special color powder! I also added some raffia at the bottom becuase it made me think of hay in the manger. I am submitting this card for the Ribbon Carousel challenge this week as well (RCC19). The challenge this week is anything goes :-) That is one of my favorite types of challenges. After I added the raffia, I wasn't sure if that counted as something that comes on a spool so I added a dab of gold and white wired ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by!!
