I love this stamp. Background was done with my brayer and rainbow dye inkpad, Silver Mica Magic was applied to draw out the details of the stamp. The main layer (blue) was stamped and embossed in clear with a Holly branch stamp from Penny Black.
What can be more French than Paris...? Same technique as above with this beautiful French stamp of the Effiel Tower. Main background layer is a cuttlebug highlighted with gold ink.
"THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS"
I was inspired by "Vada Schutz " of TC she did such a beautiful card ... I wanted to try it too. No special technique involved just basic stamping. Alcohol inks background, I printed my design on Acetate and embossed with black (my design was built from various clip art elements I had), image placed on front. Tree behind the church was hand scketched. Stamped trees at the bottom from Rubber Stampede and wording from Inkadinkado. Highlighted with white Liquid Appliqué. The first layer was embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss dots and round nestabilities used to cut out main design and window.
I better get back to work if I want to finish all my cards before Christmas is over....LOL!
