Traditional Christmas Colours

Hello there,

It's time for a new challenge over at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Traditional Christmas Colours.'  The colours are Red, Gold and Green and you can use any or all of them.  Here's the card that I've made:


The image that I've used is by Crafty Individuals and I've heat embossed it in gold before using various inks to water colours it with.  I've also added a couple of little red gems in the center of each flower.  I've used distress ink with a little glycerine in the background.  I find that this gives a nice, smooth finish and you don't need to use as much ink.

We are very generously sponsored this month by Lesley and David from
'Chocolate Baroque'
The prize are these two fabulous Christmas themed stamp sheets 
    

We'd love you to join us this month and to be inspired by our 'Traditional Christmas Colours ' theme but please remember that Stamping Sensations is a 'STAMPING' challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

A most elegant design, Sandra! I love the gold embossing. Must try your tip with the glycerine, if it helps make the background as good as yours.
