I have to start making a Christmas card now and then this month or I will be very short handed when it comes time to send my greetings out so I found this NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) stamp set from Penny Black called Red Star. After using it I find I absolutely love the way it looks on a card. So this will be my last card entered into Darnell Knaus's Blog #12 NBUS Challenge.
I used my MISTI so that I could get a good impression and colored the image in with Zig Clean Color markers. These are a watercolor marker and so I only did a small portion of the design at a time and repeated adding the colors until I got the look I wanted. Well this image has a more grainy look to it and so since I wanted to smooth it out a bit more I then took and did a direct to already stamped image using the red colored Zig marker to fill in some of that grainy look. I added some little yellow rhinestones to the center to dress up the design and used black ink to stamp the sentiment. This panel was then die cut with a die from the My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 29 set and then placed on a card base of Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine card stock.
I also die cut another panel from the white card stock and added that to the inside of the card so that I could stamp or write a message.
This card will be entered into the September Rudolph Days Challenge. And, I think I will be making several of this design in the future. I love it.
Thanks for the visit and I hope your week is going great.
