Stamp Something Challenge Card - Christmas




I found out about this challenge from Dawn (yes, I mention her a lot as she is my friend and lives so close!). It is found at the Stamp Something challenge blog. They have teamed up with DRS Designs to offer some great blog candy! You need to check it out! I've been behind the eight ball to get my Christmas cards done, and this one put me over the hump, so to speak! I love the DRS stamps...their images are great and very coloring friendly!

For this card I used all DRS Designs stamps, SU cardstock, and a bit of SU patterned paper. For the dove and olive branch image, I painted some twinkling H2Os (Oyster and Moss Green) to give some shine, and I stamped the background stamp in Old Olive to give a tone on tone effect. The red is Riding Hood Red, and I used black also. The shapes cut in the center of the card are from the MM Slice, and it is from the Noteworthy cartridge. To finish off the card, I used a silver pen from Creative Memories because I love the intense silver ink that it gives.

Thanks for stopping by to see my latest, and definitely check out this challenge!
