CHRISTMAS LINEN DOTS

Helloooo Junkies!!!! 

Did you enjoy the 30 days of Christmas celebration?  Did you grab yourself some great deals and stock your Christmas stamp collection with the awesome Technique Junkie Stamps?  It was so much fun to see all the fabulous creations with these stamps.  We all want to see your creations on the Technique Junkies FaceBook page, so please join us there and show off your creations.  

I have a quick and fun card for you today using "Linen Dots" from the October 2017 Release.  .  I like to try and create Christmas cards using non-Christmas type stamps, sometimes and love how this came out.  



After stamping this stamp on a white cs panel in Versamark Ink, I heat embossed it with gold ep and colored various circles with Copic Markers.  I embossed the sentiment from the "Gifts of Christmas Set of 5"  in gold ep on a piece of vellumn and adhered it to the front of the panel.  They were both then layered on a gold cs panel.  Quick and easy but I so love the results.  

I hope you found some inspiration here today.  Thanks for stopping by.

 cardstock
 inks (I used Ranger Distress inks)
MISTI 
sponge
Scrap of paper or post-it notes

Stamps used: Autumn (set of 6)


I laid a piece of scrap paper (hold firmly or use washi tape to hold) over 
my card and sponged on Dried Marigold ink. 


I moved my paper down and sponged with Ripe Persimmon ink.


I moved my paper down and sponged with Barn Door ink 
and then did a final layer with Aged Mahogany Ink.


I splattered a little Barn Door ink (add a little water and splatter with a paint brush) 
and then added my sentiment in black ink. 

I stamped and watercolored my leaves in the same ink colors to finish my card.
