I hope you are having a good weekend, and have not encountered too many ghosts tonight!!
Our internet connection has been rather affected by all the witches flying hereabouts so it has taken me two hours just to load up my photos of my C Card which I am trying desperately to share before the deadline over at Scrappy Mos. I also want to share it with the Funkie Challenge as I took my inspiration with Tag 4.
Here is the card.....
I really liked the "tartan" look of Linda's background, but I do not have the stripes stencil, nor a stripe stamp so I used my Wendy Vecchi background stamp and Festive Berries DI and grabbed a snippet piece of cream cardstock that was in the crapalanche next to my guillotine. Then I took my Forest Green and Mustard Seed DI pen and a ruler and drew on the lines before taking a water brush and going over the stripes. Once this was dried I took my TH holly stencil and bronze embossing paste and left overnight to dry.
While the background was drying I se to work on the rest of the card. I took some dark green cardstock and cut the holly design using my Silhouette. I cut a paler green card stock with a Joanna Sheene Ivy die and then ran my embossing tool over the back of the greenery. I needed some red berries so I used some snippets of glitter cardstock and my TH lamppost die to create the berries.
Next the Poinsettia for which I used some cream textured cardstock, edged with Gathered Twigs DI and then layered them, once shaping them. I used some bronze embossing powder to make the poinsettia centre and edge of the green layer.
Last was the sentiment, which I used a TH stamp, bronze embossing powder, a piece of red MME background paper and my card was complete.
Let's hope I can still link with the Rudolph Day challenge, Scrappy Mo being in Canada. I am also linking this with Linda over at Funkie Junkie. I do need to catch up with the other tags I have missed out. And lastly, I am linking with my mate Di over at the Snippets Playground. I hear there is a rather large bonfire party planned. I am in charge of the marshmallows!!
I have just learnt from my friend Viv that this also qualifies for the Festive Flowers and Foilage challenge over at Sir Stamp Alot. Thanks Viv!
Have a great week every one. Don't forget that if you wish to buy any of the goodies I used for this they (and other things) are available at the Funkie Junkie Boutique!!
