- an Impression Obsession Cling stamp (and I can't find a link on the website..I bought this one on sale at a show). Colored this one while we were in Florida, using the Staedtler fine line markers purchased at Target some time ago. The pens are lovely for getting into tiny spaces, but they have a tendency (at least in my hands) to 'dig at the paper'. Used WoStella over the pen coloring, and then applied a coat of glossy accent over each tree. I liked that effect - looks very glistening.
- Die cut with a long S/B scallop rectangle, and created a faux mat by tracing the outer edge of the same die, making it a bit larger. Hand cut that...I was trying to ground the trees with a bit of green underneath them. Also wanted some separation from the white embossed background...which was done with 2 different embossing patterns.
- sentiment is from HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments, using a Red Versafine ink, punched out with SU punch, edged with the same red ink. Red glitter sticker spots to trim, and Voila, it's done!
So how about joining in with October's Rudolph Day challenge, and perhaps you might be the lucky winner of a pretty Memory Box Small Blooming Poinsettia die.
I'm very behind with returning all the lovely visits from the 2 earlier DeeDee's card posts, but I'll try to catch up tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a few pics of the trees we see from the front porch. These were snapped after our drizzle moved in, so the colors are not as great as that of Sunday, when we still had some warm sunshine and wonderful blue skies. Hope you enjoy.
