Darkroom Door Christmas Competition

I hadn`t had a chance to play with these beautiful Christmas stamps until yesterday, & I got 3 projects done. For the first one, I started with a plain white base card which I sprayed with sunflower Glimmer Mist (a gift from Marie) & then I used my Fiskars` edge punch(also a gift from Marie) to give it a scalloped edge, I then used the "Believe, Faith, Hope " stamp & MarvyMatchables ink (Brilliant yellow) to stamp the b`ground, inking the edges with Adirondak Rust ink. Using the yellow ink, I then stamped & clear-embossed the reindeer, cutting it & adding some beads treaded through some wire. I stuck down a piece of silk fabric (it has a texture like burlap, but being silk it`s not as bulky) onto my prepared card front, & added the reindeer image. I also stamped & clear-embossed the word Peace, cutting it & layering over a piece of hand-made paper which I had stuck down to a piece of chipboard. I stamped & clear-embossed the Christmas postmark, & rubbed some brown ink over the top. Lastly , I added the fibres for a colourful finishing touch. I`ll be back later to show the other 2 projects...Thanks for visiting :)
