... and red all over!! Those are the instructions for this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge, set by Jennifer over at Styles Ink. I seem to remember that as one of the few jokes I could ever remember - the answer being a newspaper!!! However, I knew just what I was going to do for this challenge. A nice simple Christmas bauble and some lovely red holly berries.
Holly; Elusive Images - Kelmscott Baubles; Stampin' Up! - Contempo Christmas
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress - Barndoor
I'm not entirely happy with the result; the bauble is too high up because I stamped too much of the holly border, but it's okay and I know what to do to make it better. I also think that next time I do this card, I'm going to use smooth card and possibly use black tinsel embossing powder to make the bauble sparkle. After all it's a Christmas card - and there really should be bling!!!
That's all for now. I'm off to collect Kathryn - she's been out at a Halloween Party in our local community centre. It was hopping when I left and I'm sure the children will all be on a sugar rush - but I'll bet they had fun.
