Christmas Red, Gold and Green


Hello,

I was playing with my new Prisma pencils last night, I picked up some OMS earlier in the day and was keen to see how well they work together. I have some Derwent pencils that I've used with Baby Oil but these work so much better, the colour spreads over the page really smoothly which means you don't end up working so hard to blend in. Still need to play some more but the image on this card is my first go and it made a card.

The stamp is from Theresa Momber's set 'Very Merry Christmas' for GKD inked with Memento Tuxedo Black onto GKD PL layering weight . Once I'd coloured the image I sat it on some Apple Green card that had one short edge distressed.
My base card is American Craft Card in Rouge. I had a small amount of the Christmas Words dp left from last year, not sure who it's from. To the bottom of this strip I added the gold card that had been punched with a Fiskars border punch. At the top I tied the pretty red and green glittery ribbon and attached the whole section to the base card.
The stamped image sits on fine foam dots to pop it up a little. Then to finish I added the five mini red gems.

I think I need to start writing my Christmas cards just in case I need to make more!!! We received our first one yesterday......... why am I not that organised??

Till next time.........

Your card is gorgeous, and you did a wonderful job with the coloring! Wow, the shading is perfect, just beautiful. And I love what I call the half and half background! I wish I could remember that more often. I love the wording on the bottom! Great card! Best, Curt
