Candlelight

Another Christmas card with a few challenges in mind.  My Christmas cards for this year are all made and written, with a few spare in case I have forgotten someone.  So, I'm starting on my cards for Christmas 2018!
The image is a wood mounted Stampendous stamp I found in a bargain bucket at a craft fair earlier this year.  The image is stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and coloured with Promarkers.  The sentiment is from a Woodware set of stamps, stamped with Versafine 'Onyx Black'.  To add some sparkle, I went over the yellow, orange and grey with a clear Spectrum Noir glitter brush.  I added some faux stitching around the edge with a fineliner pen to finsh off my card.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  10. This is a beautiful Mackintosh style image Liz and how lovely to find it in a bargain bin, and the pretty faux stitching looks great around the edge. I wish I had finished my cards but still making some at least for the next few days or so as I am so behind. Every year I say I am going to get them all done by the beginning of December but it never works..lol. x
