STAMP SOMETHING CHALLENGE


Well I didn't make it back yesterday as I had planned... unfortunately some things happened that turned a good day to bad & there were higher priorities in life than blogging... sad but true. Does anyone have a magic wand they can wave to make this credit crunch go away???
Alas I attempted to put this card together last night just to take my mind off things... didn't quite turn out like I wanted but hey ho... that's the way it goes sometimes.
Biggest thing I don't like about the card is my inking.... yuck....
As for the layout... that's all my own work so it fits perfect for the challenge this week over at Stamp Something challenge blog.
Image is one of the Popcorn christmas stamps & I have water coloured it using Sakura Metallic pens so it has a nice shine to it.
Christmas trees are made using Cuttlebug die cut & embossing plates.
Card Candy obviously from Craftwork Cards
Ribbon & snowflakes from my stash
Would you believe that I've had to take about a dozen pictures to get one where you can see the true colour of the trees... for some reason they kept showing up as deep red on all the pics... needless to say my apologies for the strange angle etc but it's the best I could get today....
Now I'm off to finish another challenge card which is about 60% done at the moment, some housework & shopping to do also but hope to get back later... yesterday really sucked so I fancy quite a bit of crafting today to cheer myself up...
Happy crafting

Sorry to hear you have problems Lorraine. The card is lovely and maybe you will start a new trend with the angle in the photo, I thought it looked good.
