Time for a new sketch at Merry Monday. It is almost scarey how fast Christmas is approaching. If you have yet to start your Christmas cards…your time is running out! My card is created with Smokey Plum, which is a shade of purple. My camera skills are lacking in taking the photo though! I am sure to you my card looks like I have used one color for my ink, another for my paper and another for my ribbon. In person, they are the same shade! I always craft at night…so natural light photo attempts! Here is the original sketch:
The stamps are from the October Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas. I inked my ornament with Smokey Plum pigment ink and clear embossed. I then swiped Pearl paint into the un-embossed area to add some shimmer. You will have to take my word for it…I don’t see any shimmer in the photo either! At least my bling still blings!
I finished out the inside as well. The pattern paper is from the Moonlight paper pack. While the paper pack is more so for Halloween, I thought the purple colors worked well for a Christmas card.
