The busy weekend also meant that I had to wait until this morning to join in the new challenge over at Less is More. This week was a colour challenge and Chrissie and Mandi asked us to use gold on a card. I didn't have any gold ink for stamping and my gold embossing powder is is called 'old gold' and when I tried it one white card it didn't look too good so I opted to make a black card :-
I die cut and stamped the tree in versamark ink and used gold perfect pearls over the top. This looked too shiny and didn't match the embossing powder I used for the sentiment so I rubbed the perfect pearls with paper towel to dull it a little and give a more distressed look. I stamped and embossed the candle baubles and raised them on foam to give a little dimension. I'm not sure that I like this one - a black Christmas card doesn't seem very festive somehow!
I'm starting a new on line stamping class today so I may be back more often in the next couple of weeks to share some of the things we make.
Thanks for stopping by.
