STAMPlorations - Stamps and Layers


Deck the halls with boughs of holly....


This month's STAMPlorations challenge is Stamps and Layers.  I've layered a watermarked panel made with the word block from Vignette: Christmas Block (instructions for making the watermark panel can be found here) onto my card and edged it with a black Gelato stick and added white dots with a Uniball Signo white pen.

I stamped three sets of bells from the same set, coloured them and cut them out, added Glossy Accents to the clappers and holly berries, stuck them onto the black fibre then onto the card, then stamped my sentiment (from Joyful) to follow the line of the bells.  I drew in the hyphen with a 0.5 pen, and added the dashes with a 0.1 pen to mimic the font of the sentiment.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team, and from our guest designer, Lee-Anne.

And don't forget to include your entry into our never-ending Anything Goes challenge if you're using STAMPlorations stamps:)
