First up is one that I've done for a few challenges:
- Less is More "Fruit"
- Merry Monday "Birds"
- Christmas Cards All Year Round "Keep It Simple with Minimal Embellishments and Lots of Open Space"
- Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge "Favourite Technique".
It's like a lovely old woodblock print of a partridge in a pear tree and it deserves to have lots of open space around it. I heat embossed it (and the sentiment) in gold and bordered both with red, mounted them on a stitched rectangle, and popped that up on the card base.
My second card today is for today's SCS Ways to Use It "Put a Sock in It (Christmas Socks!)" and Christmas Stampin' All Year Long "Christmas Gift" challenges.
I used a Penny Black stamp that is perfect for both challenges as it has stockings and gifts.
I stamped it on watercolour paper and coloured it with Zig brush markers. I sponged around the edges with Antique Linen, and did the same to the sentiment label.
I had fun doing bits of the image with different things - red stickles on the ornaments / lights on the garland, a cream pearl pen on the candles, gold stickles on the candles' flames, and Flower Soft on the animals' hats.
