This card was made for today's sketch challenge and the Tuesday Crafty Secret Forum Challenge.
Christmas Ornament from the Christmas Joy collection of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps was stamps onto DP from Basic Grey's Wassail paper pad with Pitch Black Adirondack ink. Edges were distressed slightly with Walnut Stain Distress ink and then parts of the ornaments were inked with a Gold Sakura Glitter pen. Bird image was stamped onto white cs with and colored with Copic markers. Both images were cut with scissors. Bird was mounted onto the ornament with doublesided foam tape. Ornament was mounted onto another DP from the Wassail paper pad, which was punched and embossed on the corners with a Fiskars corner punch. Used a snowflake punch to cut the 3 snowflakes which were colore with a Gold Glitter pen and mounted onto the 3 squares. Stamped the sentiment JOY onto DP with Walnut Stain and cut it into squares which were mounted on top of the snowflakes. Rest of the layers are DP from the same Wassail paper pad. Added some dots with a Signo Pen.
I really like it. The color tones are great. The bird in the middle of the ornament is nice especially popped. I didn't notice right away but the snowflakes spell out JOY. It has that old fashioned look. I think you did a great job. -Con.
