Rudolph Day Challenge at Scraps of Life with Scrappymo. The challenge starts today and is open until 31st of July if you fancy taking part. You just need to make something with a Christmas theme and there is a super MB die as a prize.
My card is made with a Crafty Indviduals NBUS stamp. I stamped onto white card with black Archival ink and coloured the images with Coloursoft pencils. I then masked each one in turn with post it notes and sponged in the backgrounds with various Distress Inks. I cut them apart with fancy edged scissors called stamp, which were bought many years ago when I did a craft shop class on postage art. I am not so sure this was a good idea now as I can see that I haven't lined them up very well. It looked OK 'till I saw it on the screen.The red mat is cut to the same size as the original stamp which has black dots between and around the images to simulate perforation. Next I cut a larger mat from green glitter card, and I used red line extra strong tape to stick the red mat to the glitter card because I have found in the past that ordinary double sided doesn't always stay stuck and I don't want to find them falling apart when I come to write them at Christmas time. The base card is a folded white A6 size and having fixed the main panel in place I stamped the holly with Olympia Green Versafine ink and coloured the berries with a Barn Door Distress Marker, and the sentiment with Barn Door DI. The holly stamp is from a Paper Artsy set and the sentiment is Chocolate Baroque.
