It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Well with the weather we're having anyway!
Thought I'd have a go at some slightly unusual colours - orange & green, have seen this on a few cards recently and quite liked it. Not too sure about this card though....
The background card was plain orange but I used a couple of stamps from the Whimsy Trees See D and the versamark stamp pad to create a watermarked background. the images are from a couple of christmas embossing sets for the cuttlebug, which I swiped over with a peach coloured chalk inkpad to highlight the ridges and then mounted onto green paper, they are slightly raised as I glued them on using silicone glue & didn't press too hard. The best bit of the card is the ribbon, though I still have to learn to tie knots neatly. I did think about highlighting the outside of the card by swiping with a gold inkpad, but decided that might be fiddling too much.
Like I said, I'm not sure if I like this or not, but at least I've got one card sorted for Christmas.
Off to try and find inspiration for some more cards.
