Cute Card Thursday - A Sketch

Happy Thursday!

At Cute Card Thursday this week, we have a sketch challenge for you. Here is the beautiful sketch created by Deb...

I'm getting in a Christmas mood, so I made another Christmas card...


Stamps: Unwrapped Tilda , Fancy Flexible Phrases (SU!). 
Paper: Holiday Wonder (The Paper Studio)
Ink: Distress Ink, Memento, alcohol ink
Accessories: Lace, Charms, acrylic piece, Alcohol Ink Applicator, Glossy Accents


Tilda is colored with distress ink reinkers. I have discovered that coloring with the reinker rather than the stamp pad makes the colors stronger and more dynamic.


I used alcohol ink to color my gold ornaments.


I also used alcohol ink to add the marbling effect on my acrylic piece. I stamped on a Merry Christmas on a piece of DP and used Glossy Accents to attach the paper to the acrylic.

Thanks for stopping by today!
