Not long to go now till Christmas and here's my mid month reminder card for our November challenge at Stamping Sensations, which this time is 'Traditional Christmas Colours' - so we want to see creations made with the colours - Red/Green/Gold - any or all!
I have gone for a relatively quick CAS card which I have batch made in different colours - I made a similar one some time back using blue and silver and this time went for red and gold.
I randomly stamped pine branches and ferns using Gold Encore Ultimate Metallic ink.
Once dry I took one of my really old stamps from a flower collection (no idea who's it is or how old it is!) - and stamped the stems in the same ink and quickly added some gold embossing powder. The photo doesn't show it very well but the flower stems stand out really well!
Re-aligned the piece in the Misti and used Crimson Red Versafine for the flower heads.
The die cut sentiment has to be one of my faves - and it looks really nice embossed!
We have the fab Chocolate Baroque as our sponsors this month - full details over on the blog.
Please remember though we have to see STAMPING as the focal point of your entry for you to be eligible for the prize!
Thanks for looking - have a great day whatever you're doing. x
