I think I mentioned on Monday’s post that I tend to steer away from the classic Red, Green and Gold at Christmas, and today’s card is much more up my Christmas alley! This card is a CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) of THIS card by the lovely Dani Dziama….. I was totally struck by the Colour Combination and that sheet music background stamp (which I love…. but somehow hadn’t paired it with Carols of Christmas!)
I love the effect given by using Stampin’ Write Markers on a sentiment like this…. being able to get different colours for different words. There are several tricks to colouring your stamps with marker:
- Use the brush tip, on it’s side…
- apply LOTS of ink to prevent lines appearing on your stamped image
- breath on it before you stamp to re-activate any ink that might have dried
The background is that lovely Sheet Music stamp, stamped in Smoky Slate onto Whisper White card stock…. but there might be a stamp free way to get a similar look very soon……. 😀
The card is finished with some Berry Burst ribbon and a trio of Metallic Enamel Dots… oh and that layer of Silver Glimmer Paper!
