An Un-Traditional Challenge

The super-talented Shelly (Stamp with Shelly) has issued a challenge on the Rubbernecker Stamp Company Blog: Make a Christmas card using untraditional colors.

Here is what I came up with:

Silent night and trees

The Snowy Night image was stamped with Pear Tart Memento--the pad is quite juicy so I was able to heat emboss the image with clear embossing powder.

The  Hope and Love  sentiment was stamped over top with StazOn Jet Black.

I sponged Broken China Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the bottom and Concord Grape Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the top.

The cardstock is from Bazzill.   I embellished with jewels and stickles.

I hope you have a chance to play along and then link your project to the Rubbernecker Stamp Company Blog!!
