I love the silhouette images that Claire created for the Rustic Christmas set and I used a couple on this card. I stamped the stag head in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear powder. I wanted to emphasise the image, so die cut a mask and inked around the image with red and green. I put the die over the image and drew around the edge with a gold pen - I moved the die around a bit to create some doodled lines and used two different shades of gold pen. On the inside I cut a mat layer of red card. On the white panel I stamped another of the silhouette images with Versamark, heat embossed with clear powder and then went over it with some green ink - love resist emboss!! I finished by drawing a faux stitched border.
I used a few challenges for this card. It's a one layer card, so I'm submitting to One Layer Christmas Card Challenge - OLXCC#22 where the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of a silhouette - done! The colours are from Just Us Girls - JUGS#320 - so festive. Finally, The photo at Inkspirational - INK#96 gave me the idea of a stag head.
That's it for now, but I'll be back later today with my post for the new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! Do drop by and check it out! See you soon.
