Good morning everyone, all my Christmas cards are finished and either posted (though God knows when/if they will arrive), hand delivered or waiting for me to see the recipients over the next couple of days; so today I’d like to share an ATC I made for the Visible Image December swap over on FB. The theme this month was traditional Christmas colours, and the rules are that only VI stamps, stencils and dies can be used.
I cut a piece of stamping card 3.25” x 2.25” and stamped/ heat embossed the tree and Christmas numbering. I then created the background by sprinkling on brusho ink and spritzing with water. I then applied red and gold gems to represent tree baubles, edged the panel with gold Posca pen and matted onto standard ATC size card … that’s it!
Stamps: Visible Image Christmas Tree, Distressed Christmas;
Media: Brusho ink (Vermilion); Versafine Clair (Shady Lane); Versamark; gold and clear embossing powders;
Gems from my stash.
