I've managed to make a card for this challenge well before the deadline. I was supposed to be helping fit a sink but really wasn't much help so was able to scuttle off and do inking in between times.
Last post I mentioned how I'd forgotten how much I like inking. This time I realised how much mess I make. There were finger prints everywhere! I thought I'd got much more careful but it obviously depends what I'm doing.
The challenge at 52 CCT is:
I do like this technique and used to use it a lot. I got out some shiny paper and this is what I made:
My plan was for the panel to be dark blue but as you see it turned out in shades of purple with a little pink and blue. I cut out the circles in the panels and stamped using the same snowflakes on the basecard. The when looking for a ribbon I found this purple snowflake ribbon left over from last year and it was perfect. A knot and a couple of scored lines on the right and it was done. Apart from a lot of fiddling about trying to get the panel stuck in the right place over the stamping, anyway.
I'm not a huge fan of non-traditional colour Christmas cards but I do think this is pretty. As I said it wasn't supposed to be this colour!
I've seen that it is Rudolf Day in Blogland, a challenge which i have never entered before. The challenge starts on the 25th and is to make a Christmas card,so here I go for the first time.
