Today I’m playing along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge
Using regular distress inks and a spritz or two of water, I stamped the fabulous tree image from my most recent Hero Arts purchase, the fun Meowy Christmas set! I cut it out using the coordinating die and then coloured the baubles with Twinkling H2Os.
I then stamped the Mod Pattern Bold Print background stamp using Pumice Stone distress oxide ink and spritzed it with Pixie Dust. I die cut a square from the stamped panel and adhered it to my base card on top of a smaller square of glitter cardstock. I then adhered my tree using foam squares and applied some red Nuvo glitter drops to each ornament.
I was pondering how to reflect that horizontal strip at the bottom of the card and then I remembered my old Holiday Ribbons wood-mounted set – also by Hero Arts! I seriously can’t believe these were made in 2005! I think I got them much later than that though… Anyway, I stamped the sentiment in the same inks as the tree – it’s always a bit nerve-wracking to use a wood-mounted stamp at the end of a project but luckily it stamped beautifully. Phew!
Thank for stopping by!
I know what you mean about using a wood mounted stamp these days! Yours worked out perfectly! Wonderful card for the holidays! Glad you shared it at FMS!
I love this! I spotted your card over at the Freshly Made Sketches since I posted one too. I LOVE this Christmas set so much. I haven’t had the chance to play with it yet. Your card is fabulous! I love the sparkle!
Beautiful patterns and textures on your card! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
