Happy Little Stampers - October Christmas Challenge

Well it's getting ever more closer to Christmas now we're into October. So time to really get cracking on with those Christmas cards and get a few more in your stash!

This month's Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge has a really on trend twist - SILHOUETTE.

Here's my card:

And don't I love it when I can get my favourite purples out and onto a card! These ones were used as a backgound by masking off the card to leave just a circle showing to apply the colours. Then the images were stamped on top using the misti tool to get a good deep coverage of ink.

A few extra little stars stamped outside the circle and the addition of some iridescent stones plus a sentiment and I was done.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Set The Scene
Inks: Ranger Distress, wilted violet, blueprint sketch; Memento, tuxedo black
Embellishments: Papermania, iridescent stones

I've been seeing loads of cards with silhouettes around blogland recently so there's plenty of extra inspiration out there. And then of course there's the essential viewing of the brilliant inspiration from my HLS team mates - HERE.

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate your visit to my blog.  And get Christmas crafting!

  6. Your card is awesome, Jane. I love the excellent CAS of your card. I also love the strong contrast between the white base and the blue-violet image. You were so good at coloring and mixed up. The sky you made is really beautiful. I think one of us would like to see this picture :-)
