For my card I decided to try to stay ahead with my Christmas cards... and to use a stamp that...gulp... had not yet been inked... yikes... I've gotten sooo hooked on digis that I have not played with my stamps in quite awhile. This one is by Penny Black and it's called Mimi dear.
For this card I used paper from Basic Grey - Nordic holiday. I used as well some card stock from BBP. I used a few dies (Layered poinsettia, Fleur de lis rectangle, scallop circle, classic circle all from Spellbinder. I also used Dee's wreath builder for the leaves). The ribbon and lace are from my stash. I don't do a lot of cards with lace... so this was a challenge for me. I have it and love the look of it but I don't use it a lot... what can I say that's why they call it a challenge right?!?
Here's the closer image of the stamped mimi. I used my copics to color her up and then added some Liquid Appliqué and some glitter ritz. I used the gathered twig distress ink all around the image and sentiment.
Here's a closer look at the sentiment. I also added some Liquid Appliqué on it with some glitter ritz. The sentiment is from a fabulous set over at Create with TLC. You should go and check it out.
I hope that you will be joining us this week Dutch dare. Don't forget to check out the wonderful creations done by my fellow DT!
