Baubles

Afternoon - I'm going to be so ready for Christmas with all this blogging. Love how its making me think and use stamps that have not had a lease of life for a long time. Not sure why I haven't used this one because I love it now.
The stamp is a wooden one with "Great Inpressions" on the side - haven't checked to see if its still available. I coloured it with a combination of Copics and Whisper stroke pens. The card was designed with the Winter Wonderland challenge in mind - a photograph and using blues/purples and silver. I added clear glitter to areas of the three baubles and inked the edge with a purple VersaMagic chalk ink - pretty pertunia.




I made the card blank from a piece of dark purple card. I then matted and layer a piece of holographic silver card first, followed by a piece of purple marbled card which I enbossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder. To fit the the 52 Christmas card throwdown challenge I added the to strips of paper from my Christmas stash and a silver sentiment. At the top and bottom i added some contrasting coloured glitter and finished it off with 3 flower gems from my stash xx
