Christmas more to come

Well I guess I might as well face it...I am in the Christmas is another card that I have created that was inspired off my TC. I think it is pretty cute myself.

This card was created by stamping the focal image in Noir ink and then coloring the holly with a tombow marker and using the blender pen to make the marks nice and smooth. I use glossy cardstock for this as it is a bit more forgiving.

Once this was done I then took a Glaze pen and outlined the veins in the leaves and set it aside
I punched the scalloped circle out and using our white gel pen i marked each scallop in the middles.

I also stamped the Christmas sentiment in white ink and then embossed with transcendence powder to make it pop and mounted on the green cardstock to match the focal image.

The background was achieved with the Deco Designs frond stamped with Burnt umber. A softer
appearance for the background can be achieved by stamping off first

Once I was ready to mount I took a hydra sponge and tapped into my burnt umber and then lightly tapped my focal circle to age it a bit. It wound up a bit darker than I wanted but it still looks good.

All items from The Angel Company. If you are interested in further scans or step by step instructions or product please let me know and I will be glad to help.

A bit eclectic, but that was the look I was after. This is a card that I did for the eclectic swap I am hosting. The Stamp set is Everyday Eclectic from The Angel Company. The stamps were inked up in Noir Black by Palette Ink, and lavendar from Stazon and A light yellow also from Stazon. And you actually see my handwritting on this one...The tag from the Juliette kit also has the tag that I used.

If you are interested in anything I used in this card let me know, I will be glad to help you get the products.

The green printed stock was torn and then inked with jumbo java. For the Tag, I used a knot and an eyelet in Antique to put the ribbon through and put the tag on the card using pop dots.
Supplies Used:
Love and Laughter Stamp set - The Angel Company
Willouby Paper - The Angel Company
Jumbo Java Versa Magic
Hint of Pesto Versa Magic

I am going to become a big fan of this paper. The picture just doesn't do this little number justice. I just couldn't get my light right. The background is brown and layered with Willoby dot and the green DP.. Then using my gloss stock I stamped the Love and Laughter Tree and sentiments using Versa Magic Hint of Pesto and Jumbo Java. I also tore the green cardstock and then inked with jumbo java. I also inked the edge of the gloss cardstock with the ink pads. Here I made sure to smudge it a bit. Keep a lookout I have another card like this going to post this week!
