Christmas at Inky
I'm back again. This time with my DT card for Inky Impressions. Our theme this week is CHRISTMAS, and I've used one of our wonderful rubber stamps called "MarLeigha's Ornament Dance" (MR11-MOD08). If you haven't tried one of our rubber stamps, you really should. They are wonderfully eched, red rubber back with cling for instant use -- no prep other than pulling them out of the bag, putting them on your acrylic block and inking them up. You will get a perfect image every time!
I used Momento tuxedo black, X-press It brand card and Copic markers. I then cut my image into a circle using a Spellbinder circle die. I then mounted the circle on top of the Spellbinder Stately Circles die (S4-388) which I cut from the burgundy colored paper.
My card is white with a mat of green and then my striped DP. I also cut about a 2" strip to go on top of the striped DP. The ribbon I used is a beautiful ecru with gold threads which I tied into a double loop bow. The white poinsettia is by K&Co, and I placed that on top of gold leaves. Under the leaves, I've added gold swirls made with another Cheery Lynn die. I placed the poinsettia close to the image so that it would appear that MarLeigha is about to add her ornament.
Christmas is starting to get awfully close, so if you have not started making your Christmas cards (or haven't made all of them), this challenge is perfect for you. Remember, you are not required to use an Inky Impressions image to enter our challenge. However, if you do use one of our delicious images, you get an additional chance to win our lovely prize -- a gift certificate for use in the Inky online store. So please drop by the Inky Impressions Blog and have a look at all the beautiful cards the DT have made this week to inspire you. Thanks!
