CAS Christmas

Today's card is a quick, clean and simple one.
The background was a piece I found in my stash.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • Like I mentioned above, I found this background in my stash.  It was a sheet I used to roll Distress Oxide inks off of my brayer while Gel Plate printing.  I always save those sheets as they are easy to stamp onto and the blended inks left behind are beautiful. I will have to guess at the colour combo though....Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and some Peeled Paint.
  • I placed the previously inked panel into my Misti and stamped the tree boughs and the sentiment.
  • I splattered with a generous amount of ink, then added 3 silver gems.
  • I glued it all onto an A2 sized card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

A fabulous result Karen - that background is stunning, and the silhouette stamping is, as usual, perfect against it.
