Hi everyone. Today is the start of the Happy Little Stampers September Christmas Challenge ...
The two piece die-cut ornament is also coloured with inka gold. I diluted some with water and then flicked my solid background ornament, leaving some of the areas white. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the solid part of the ornament is very shiny ... similar to the sentiment. I took another piece of white card stock and sponged with inka gold until it was solid. Once dry, I die-cut the intricate-cut top piece and then buffed everything with a dry cloth. Buffing Inka Gold brings out the shine. A small gold cord bow finishes the card.
I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge. Make a Christmas card that has holly on it (any style of card is welcome), and click on the linky at the bottom of the challenge post to add your card. We'd love to see you in the gallery!
I'm entering this card into Merry Monday #170 - Use Holly.
Entering this into AAA Card Challenge - #47 Spectacular Embossing.
And also, I'm adding this to the Happy Little Stampers September CAS Challenge - Colouring. I used inka gold to colour my ornament using the smooshing technique.
Thanks for coming by for a visit!
