Hello. ABC Christmas Challenge has started their last challenge for this year. Having reached the letters ‘Y‘ and ‘Z‘ we want to see your Christmas creations using the theme of ‘Yummy’ and ‘Zigzags’. Here is my card:
I chose to go with the zigzag theme – as you can probably tell – and used the Altenew ‘Pattern Play: Hexagon’ stamp set to create my zigzags. I stamped in black the clear heat embossed the lines onto watercolour card stock, then used a couple of Distress Inks to water colour the zigzags.
I went with a couple of less traditional colours, but I like the effect this created.
I then used a Simon Says Stamp/CZ Design set for the sentiments – heat embossing in gold the outline for the ‘jingle‘ words in a bronze colour. I then used some glue to fill-in the larger words, and added Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter.
I felt the background was a little too bold for the words, so I added a small piece of vellum and stamped the smaller sentiment towards the bottom of that piece.
I hope you can come and join us for this challenge – please follow the themes to be in with a chance of winning the prize offered up by Samantha, who is hosting this challenge. xx
