Today's card is one that I did for Pat's Saturday Night Challenge over at Southern Breezes. I've been so busy between sick kids and design team commitments that I haven't really sat down and stamped for myself in awhile. It felt great to just sit and play around with techniques. The challenge from last week was 2 papers, 2 stamps, 1 punch, ribbon and glitter. Since I'm a bit late for last weeks challenge and it happens to meet this weeks challenge of a Christmas card with lots of techniques, I'll go with that, LOL!
To create the tag on the card, I swiped Tim Holtz Distress ink on a nonstick mat and spritzed it with water. I swiped my tag through the ink to create a soft watercolor effect. Its a bit hard to see in the photo, but I also sprayed on some Tattered Angels rose spray to give it a bit of glimmer. While it was still damp, I dragged my scissors along the edges of the tag to distress it. When it was dry I stamped the holly sprig image repeatedly on the tag. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed in white EP.
I used a set of stamps called Yuletide that I won from DarkRoom Door a few months ago. Wait till you see the tree image in this set. Gorgeous stamps!
Have a fabulous weekend!
