Traditional Christmas

Hello and a very happy Saturday morning to you all

Today is the start of a new challenge at Fantasy Stampers and this fortnight the design team would love to see your Taditional Christmas projects. Here is my DT card -
This is a big card (8inches square) - I got a little carried away! I stamped Sheena's perfect poinsettia stamp onto watercoloured card with Stazon ink and coloured them with my Sparkle pens and Spectrum Aquas -

  • red berry sparkle pen
  • burgundy Spectrum Aqua (to add the shading)

 I made the ivy sprigs from Sheena's stamping card and Die'sire ivy which I then coloured with Olive jade Sparkle pen.
The other ingredients used were -

  • Sheena's poinsettia die set
  • Neenah card
  • gold centura pearl
  • gold embossing powder
  • Nordic Christmas time embossing folder (from Crafter's Companion)
  • Penny Black Believe greetings
  • gold gems
  • Spellbinder's circle and scalloped circles nesties

A close up of the embossing.
The sentiment.

I hope you are able to join us at Fantasy Stampers this fortnight. Please remember we are a stamping challenge and your main image must be a stamped one.

Thank you for stopping by today
