I took a pic of this card that i finished yesterday and intended to save it for a later post but onto my reading list has just popped up the brand new challenge over at CAS Christmas which has the theme of Birds!
Now I know Halloween is approaching but to have a challenge theme for a card I literally just finished is - well - a little bit spooky!!
This card was just made to go into my stash for me to send at Christmas and has used up a few odd bits of watercolour card.
Simple brick embossed background, a couple of dies and a stamp! Oh and a leftover piece of vellum too!
The stamp was a freebie which has never been used, coloured with watercolours and fussy cut.
Both ivy and holly dies also watercoloured and I added a bit of Red Nuvo drops to the holly (not sure they look like berries but you get the idea!) and a little bit of white embossing powder to the ivy leaves.
The sentiment stamp is an old wood backed one, part of a set of Papermania Christmas sentiment stamps I bought when I embarked on my card making a long time ago. I used Olympia Green Versafine ink then clear embossed.
Didn't take too long to make and is reasonably flat so will be OK to post too!
