Good Evening !
I'm posting a Christmas card that I created with a beautiful set of stamps called "Harlequin Christmas" from Chocolate Baroque in England. What a yummy company name and what gorgeous stamps they have. My sister who lives in Amsterdam, generously gave this set to me as a gift while on a visit here recently.
I've been following Miranda, a talented lady who is on the design team for Chocolate Baroque and Posthumas stamp store in Amsterdam. I love the Posthumas store as they have a huge selection of art stamps along with gorgeous card samples. You can find Miranda on my Blog list under 'Mir'acle art Inspirations. She recently posted cards that were designed using this set which inspired me to create with them.
I used 3 stamps from the set of 7 to create this card.
I embossed the background with Ruby Pearl powder and then blended on some Bundled Sage Distress Ink. The top panel and ornament were embossed with a deep purple (Eggplant) powder. I added some distress inks again. I highlighted the triangles on the top panel with Mica colour Interference paints to create a sheen to make them stand out. I also added some of these paints to the ornament along with some glitter. I cut out the ornament and popped it up, added a bow, layered with co-ordinating card stock. I'm anxious to experiment with other ink & embossing powders with this beautiful set.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting !
