Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday! I decided to play along today in the SCS Color Challenge: Black, Kraft and Cameo Coral. I had fun making this card as I am using some brand new toys from Our Daily Bread designs. There are three absolutely gorgeous sets to be released Nov. 1 and there will be a blog hop and the chance for you to win the Entire Release! So please check out the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog on Nov 1 and good luck!
So today I am so sorry my photo is so bad. In reality this card has lots more color contrast and pop than shows in my photo, but as is so often the case with glimmery cards on rainy days, you just can't capture the glimmer. In any case, here is what I did:
I started with a Kraft tag and with VersaMark Dazzle Champagne, I stamped the sheet music from Amazing Grace the Hymn. Then I lightly sponged on cocoa pastels to pop it out a bit. Then I stamped just the corners of the Poinsettia Corner stamp from the soon to be released set "Luke 2:11" in T Holtz Distress Ink. I sponged all around the tag with various T Holtz inks. I then stamped the Scripture from "Christmas Blessinge" with Stampabilities Black Pigment Ink and clear embossed. My poinsettias are also stamped with Stampabilities Black Pigment Ink on Watercolor paper and clear embossed, then water colored with SU! Markers and cut out. The set actually has lots of gorgeous scrolly vines and leaves that make a gorgeous corner treatment, but I cut a lot of that off for this more vintage feeling card. My base is Papertrey, then there is a layer of SU! Kraft, then the DP is from Memory Box Spiceberry. Everything... all layers and even the lace is sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Suede Between the black embossing and the glimmer mist, there is a pretty glimmer to this card. Perhaps Thurs. when the sun is supposed to come out I can get a better photo.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek and I hope you will be back on Nov 1 to hop along for a chance to win the entire new release!!! See you at Our Daily Bread Designs' Brand New Blog!
