Christmas with Dylusions Ink

Hi everyone !  I hope you are having a great week.   I've had so much fun with my Sister here visiting.   The weather has co-operated most of the time :)

Just a quick post today with a simple card that I created with Dylusions Inks.   I wanted to try something for Christmas.

I created the background by spraying Cut Grass and Postbox Red Dylusions Inks.  I also used Crafters Workshop Reversed Mini Ringlet Template TCW266S.  I was trying for Christmas colours and I think these worked but I also think that a blue would look great with the red.  Will try that soon :)   I used Festive Berries DI around the edges.

When the background was dry I stamped the Eiffel Noel image (Stampendous P129) with Black Stazon Ink and then added some red & green Stickles.      I just attached this to black folded cardstock.  I don't have any other colours here that seemed to work.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend,  I hope to be back soon with a card using one of Ryn's new Faerie releases.

I have to agree with Marja, Shirley, you may say simple but it doesn't look simple. The colours are so gorgeous and rich and look great with the Eiffel Tower stamped onto it.

Glad the weather is co-operating while your sister is with you. We have good weather forecast for the weekend but it's been either overcast or raining this week. Hope it stays nice for you this weekend, and have a good one:)
