Less is More Challenge over the past few weeks, so was determined to get one finished in time for this week's theme 'Silhouettes'.
I'm still busy making Christmas cards, so no surprise that my entry is yet another one !!
For my card I used two of my stamp bargains picked up at the Sincerely Yours Craft Show in Taunton a few days ago. The tree stamp was just £1.50 and the sentiment £1 - how good is that?
I inked up the tree stamp with Versafine black ink, stamped it directly onto the basecard, then stamped again to the left and very slightly higher than the first image without re-inking the stamp. This gave me a much paler second image and created some dimension without having to mask the first image. I added touches of subtle glitter to the trees with a Quickie Glue Pen and some Glamour Dust. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed using WOW sparkling embossing powder for added twinkle.
I don't normally like black and white Christmas cards, but I'm quite pleased with how this one has turned out. I might try the same design using different coloured inks.
