Hello. Welcome. It's hotting up here at last. It's a t-shirt day today. Must get a picture of Bob flat out in the rabbit garden. Although I am glad to see the sun it's warm for the small furries. They are all lying stretched out trying to catch some breeze. Lots of small birds visiting the pond for a bath. Fun watching them splashing about.
There is a CASE playground over at Stamplorations and Cornelia has put in a couple of cards using a stamp from Stamplorations Vignette Celebrate Artsy set to create a background. The link above is to her Christmas version. Here's mine
I know, it's a bit bright. Well, I also wanted to join the One Layer Christmas Card challenge where the twist this time is Green. So I picked a yellow base card and various shades of Distress ink. I was going to stamp the background and then add a fussy cut detail til I remembered I was trying for one layer!!! So I stamped the Paperartsy tree with Pine Needle distress. A little late I decided to try and emboss the star and basket with gold and the tree with green powder. The gold is patchy. Which I like. Sort of distressed. The green is almost not there at all. Just a little texture here and there. I quite like that as well. Then I masked and stamped the background.
I added the two vertical word stamps from Marks Finest Papers Nutcracker set and embossed with gold.
