Evening all. This late night post must mean that it's time for a brand new challenge over at ATSM.
This week's challenge is -
So, anything celebrating a festival, St Patrick's Day, Diwali, Easter or like me Christmas.
I have to apologise about the photo as it was a really tricky card to photograph, the gold embossing always causes problems.
Over at LIM their latest challenge is a one layer one, always tricky, the theme leaves even more so.
I wasn't going to be defeated though and was determined to enter, so as this is a Holiday challenge I thought of holly leaves. It also coincides with the latest CASology theme of foliage and as I've not been there for a few weeks what more excuses did I need? Flicking through my Christmas stash I came across a NEBUS stamp plate that came with a matching EF. I must have bought it in an end of season sale a couple of years back and hadn't used it. I found some dark green card in the stash and using my MISTI I masked off a portion and inked up the stamp. It took a few goes to get a good coverage so it was a good job I used the MISTI, no more wasted panels now! After embossing with gold EP, I masked off a thin strip below the holly panel and using a Versamark pen I drew a line which I then embossed in gold as well. I think the pen is drying out as it didn't keep as stick as it should even though it showed dark enough on the panel the EP isn't as intense. To complete I added an embossed sentiment using HLS's Everyday Sentiments.
