Hi everyone. Time for a new challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge (#4 - Vintage with optional element of key).
I decided to make a Christmas card. The background design is made using yet another stencil cut with my Silhouette Cameo ... love the vintage look of the damask pattern. I sponged over the stencil with Antique Linen Distress Ink, adding more colour in the center. The script is my favorite background stamp ... and one of the few that I own. I inked up just the center and then stamped off once onto scrap paper before stamping onto my card front (second generation stamping) ... giving it a subtle effect. The poinsettia is cut from dark red card stock, coated in red glitter glue, and once dry, shaped with my stylus and mat. I added some gold foil sprigs in-behind the poinsettia and used gold liquid pearls for the center. A simple banner sentiment is stamped in the same distress ink as the script (Brushed Corduroy).
I hope you'll check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the Design Team HERE. And I hope you'll join in the fun and play along. The challenge is open until the 25th of the month ... so there's lots of time to enter. Hope to see you in the gallery!
