This first one uses a beautiful Penny Black stamp which I've stamped and embossed in silver and then stamped again behind. The colour wash behind is Distress stains in weathered wood and milled lavender. Less is More this week wanted to see double so I'm entering this over there as well as at Penny Black At Allsorts who are challenging us to get ahead for Christmas.
I then went for bright colours and followed the sketch at Waltzing mouse sketch challenge and made this card. As I'm determined to continue with my Christmas card I'm looking for a festive spin for every challenge I fancy having a go at and this stamp from Waltzing Mouse made me think of Christmas lights so I've used my pro- markers to colour and added some glossy accents. For some reason the red has shown as more orange on the photo but it is a bright Chrismtas red IRL.
