Oh Baubles !!!!!

 
 
Being of a stubborn and contrary disposition I do not like to be defeated by a rubber stamp but these baubles seem to defy me at every turn !  I got this stamp a few years ago after seeing someone demonstrating it at a show using black card and pearl ex paints, stunning cards!  when I got it home and played with I realised I did not want to make Christmas cards with black backgrounds and it seems whatever I do with this stamp it never really works for me. This time I stamped and embossed the baubles in gold,masked them off and stamped the Christmas text over them and then coloured them in with copics and lots of glitter and stickles.Background panel stamped with versamark and coloured with pan pastels.The twirly swag at the top is also embossed and copic coloured. I really don't understand why the baubles look pink on here as they are coloured with Ruby copic pen which is certainly not pink,. Embossed at the bottom with a sizzex border folder and the bits of holly are from a memory box die.  Anyhow after all that I'm entering in a few challenges:
 
Winter Wonderland - Oh Baubles
 
Christmas card challenges - double embossing
 
Pan Pastels - Red and Green

  1. Gorgeous card Joan and you've made me smile too! Doesn't look pink on my screen either, just light red.
    I'm with you on the black as I don't use for Christmas either.
    Hugs, Fliss xx
