Meredith MacRitchie and her amazing DT over at Festive Friday http://festivefriday.blogspot.ca/ have challenged us to use the above colours for a holiday card. I have been remiss in posting my creations and made sure to get mine in on time this time.
These are the two I made for the Rustic challenge but didn't get a chance to submit:
So, luckily I did have a chance to create (and photograph! and post!) two cards for this colour challenge:
wood veeneer stars and that's it! (To heat emboss the wood, just pounce them in Versamark and then shake embossing powder over top before heating it up.)
** edited to add - this card was given a shout out on the Festive Friday blog: thanks so much for the sweet words!
For my next card, I went with a rustic white card base and used the Herringbone background stamp in Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink. The shine in person is awesome with that ink! Do you have a favourite gold that you use? Which one?
Versamark repeatedly for some subtle watermarking and stamped the Think Big sentiment with Versamark before using some Zing embossing powder in gold.
