Those birdies had better get wearing their protective gear as I am back to killing them two at a time again as I double up or even treble up on challenges!!
the Scrapology blog is to make an unconventional Christmas Card and Enfys's challenge on Going Buggy is to make a Christmas Card in non-traditional colours.
I recently purchased the Tim Holtz Limited Edition Summer set of distress inks and thought they would be great to use for both of these challenges - you don't often see raspberry, turquoise blue and lime green on Christmas cards. I used a Kanban stamp, stamping it it with Versamark ink and embossing with clear powder before sponging over the three colours randomly. I then cut out the centre panel and mounted the greeting using Pinflair gel in the middle. I finished it off with some hot pink organza ribbon and pearls.
I am also entering this card into Penny Black & More at Allsorts, their September challenge is Early Christmas Makes and this is also my card for week 25 of the 52 cards challenge using this sketch.
