We have lovely new challenge for you at Christmas Card Throwdown. Slightly unconventional, maybe for Christmas but lots of fun. The challenge is to use Rainbow colours.
I stamped and embossed Noel in black (very brave, I know but I got away with it). Then used two little Leane Creatif fairy light stamps to create my string of lights.
I bought this set fairly recently and forgot to check on the size before I bought them. It's a tiny set but aren't they pretty? The card is 13.5cm square. I did pencil the string first then went over it with a glittery gel pen which I also used for the bulb holders.
Top Tip - don't try and rub out after you've used a gel pen, it won't end well.
You can see a little bit of the sparkle on this picture.
Just a clue here to my obsessive nature. I stamped all the bulbs and counted them then had to add a few more so the number divided by seven so I could colour in rainbow order! I laid out the pens and didn't make a mistake. Muttering 'red, orange, yellow, green...' as I went.
The green and yellow look quite similar in the picture and you can't really see the Wink of Stella I added to the bulbs.
I just need to tidy up the inside a bit. The Pro-markers go through the cardstock so I made an insert and added a few more lights. Strangely I stamped 7 here straight off.
Thanks for visiting and Enjoy The Day. x
I'm linking the to ABC Christmas Card Challenge who are looking for old and/or new. I've used new stamps, as mentioned, and old pro-markers which I just had to have a few years ago but really have not made the most of. Must try harder.
