Two more submissions for this weeks Less Is More Challenge which is to use a bit of bling.
The card above looks so lovely IRL. I tried like crazy to capture the pretty colors but I don't think the picture does this card justice. I used SU!s Wisteria and Concord Crush card stock and ink. I used two stamps here; Agapanthus Cluster and Agapanthus Long (Stampendous!). The large cluster image was done in Wisteria (stamped off once) and the smaller image in Concord Crush. It's really hard to see, but there are three rhinestones on here; a medium one in the center of the Crush solid agapanthus and two smaller ones in the flowers to the left and right.
This card might be a bit too much to be called CAS with the layers and ribbon, not to mention barely a stitch of white to be seen, but it did start out with all white so I thought I'd toss it in anyway. There are absolutely no markings on the stamp so I have no idea who makes it. I've had it for several years and think I may have purchased it at my local stamp store. The card stock is Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Whisper White. The sentiment is a portion of a stamp that reads "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year". I masked off the HNY portion; the set is called Occasional Quotes by SU!. The image is stamped with Stazon black and colored with a mixture of SU! markers and Prismacolor pencils. The three blings are ornaments on the image. I colored in the little caps and hooks with a gold Zig pen.
I have three more cards on the craft table tonight, but won't be able to finish them until tomorrow or possibly Wednesday. I'm in a mad rush to get as many on-off cards made as I can before the 9th. Whatever number I come up short, will the count that will haveto be mass produced. :(
I can't believe how fast Christmas has rushed up this year. Anyone remember when they were young and it seemed like Christmas would never get here?? What the heck happened to those days?? LOL
Tomorrow will be dedicated to leaving comments. Hope everyone is well.
