Here are two cards that I made for Jennifer McGuire’s Thinking Inking Holiday challenge (Week 3) over at two peas.
Christmas Tree Card (click here for directions)
The center panel was stamped with the Music Background stamp CG222 in van dyke brown ink. Then I stamped the Christmas tree, Swirl Christmas CL469, over the music background and distressed it in Forrest Moss distress ink and then inked around the edges with vintage photo distress ink. To finish off the card, I wrapped red sheer ribbon around the panel and added red pearls.
Santa Card (click here for directions)
The Santa was stamped with black ink and colored with markers. I used Holographic embossing powder for the top of his boots, bottom of his coat, beard, trim and the pom pom on his hat. This embossing powder does not show up too well on camera. The stamps that I used are Hero Arts: Santa with Gift H5267, Holiday Cheer Messages LL217 and Raindrop background S5101.
