I want to share a very special card with you. I had an idea to pair The Tiny Star Background and the Greates Gift somewhere on the back of my head for very long, but finally I had an opportunity to implement it. It feels good to start preparing this early for Christmas. As the holidays approach it will be harder to find time for hand-made gifts.
I started with applying distress inks on the white eggshell watercolor paper rectangle. Then I stamped the Greatest Gift central image and colored the hill and the stamped image with a black pen. After I masked the nativity I stamped the Tiny star background in embossing ink and heat embossed in gold. It is best to do the embossing part last. I rubbed on more distress inks and heat embossed the sentiment in gold.
I would like to enter these two tag cards into the Hero Arts Holiday challenge, the category Mad About Metallics. One of the conditions for the challenge is that the card has to have a tag.
UPD: I have used 3 distress inks: Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain.
UPD2: My card was a winner! Please check Hero Arts blog.
