I picked up a new delivery from Simon Says Stamps this morning and I have about a million things to do today, so naturally, I'm not doing any of them and am playing with my stamps instead! And it being Saturday, the first place I always go looking for a challenge is Less is More where today the challenge is a colour based one - a metallic element plus a colour of our choice http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/week-149-colour.html
I'm hoping that using lots of shades of green is permitted as I really wanted to play with my new "lots of circles" stamps so I stamped 3 different sized solid circles in 5 shades of memento inks into a triangle I'd masked onto my card base to form a Christmas tree. I then used 2 of the outline circles to add some gold embossing onto the tree. The die is also from SSS and is called sparkling tree lights and I die cut it, and the tiny star on top, from some gold card, adding extra sparkle to the lights themselves with gold stickles. I finished with a gold embossed sentiment underneath (Christmas Quotes from Kaiserkraft) with the "I" looking like the tree trunk (well hopefully!) I'm really pleased with how this turned out.
Right - I really must go and get a stew in the oven or we'll be eating at 10pm!
Catch you later.
