Holly Christmas

Today I pulled out a set of stamp images from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Holiday Foliage Set 475 to go with some of the Distress Oxide Ink backgrounds I made the other day. I stamped the holly image with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored the image of the holly in with my Zig markers. I also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then using the Out of the Box technique I die cut the panel out with a double stitched rectangle die from Cottage Cutz.


Next I die cut another panel of the same white card stock as a layer for the first stamped panel. All that was left then was to add the background with those panels to a white card base.


I think this is my favorite I have done with the Oxide inks. And, even though it is a CAS design I think it has a certain elegance to it. I am adding this to the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which we are to focus on the sentiment. I think this qualifies. 

Well, that's all folks for today! I am so happy I have three cards for my Christmas supply. And, this has been so much fun playing with the Oxides. I have several more backgrounds made so who knows? I might be playing again this week.

Thanks for stopping in and as always I love your comments.

God bless,
Verna

I think you have mastered these oxides. I loved the last two cards and this is no exception. Your backgrounds are really great. The two frames on this card really add dimension and a beautiful panel for the holly and sentiment.

Wow. am going backwards with the posts catching up but loving each card more. What a beautiful way to do the cards.

May Rudolph Days Challenge

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
