Layered Swirls, Christmas and Birthday FUN!

Greetings Inky Friends!

Here's the last card in my own little personal series of using
the Layered Swirls background stamp!

I created the background using the Polished Stone technique
with alcohol inks and blending solution and inked the back ground stamp
with Black Archival ink and stamped on top.
The polished stone piece that Trust Your Journey is stamped on was a 2nd or 3rd generation of the original inking of the background piece! 
I added some Rhinestones to selected area of the Background and called it complete!
I love the jewel-tones colors in this card!

Here's a couple Christmas cards I did at the last crop I hosted....

I used one of my favorite background stamp Swaths of Texture and applied Distress Stains directly to the stamp in a couple reds and silver.  I added red and clear Stickles to the Red or White Christmas wine glasses for added sparkle and shimmer.

I was able to get a second impression from the same stains/background image and decided to create a birthday card using the versatile set Grand Greetings for an OSU loving friend.

The last card I simple covered a piece of card stock with different washing tapes and added the adorable Christmas Carol Kitty to the front. I colored him using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Thanks for stopping by and...

Until next time...
Happy Creating!
