Season's Greetings...

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US celebrating today!  Popping in with a card for the current Merry Monday challenge (green, red and white).  Also popping it into the current Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday (holiday) and Wednesday Challenge (anything goes).


I recently purchased this gorgeous Penny Black cling stamp called Red Star and finally found the time to ink it up.  I colored it with some Ranger Distress ink markers (Barn Red, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint & Wild Honey), spritzed it with water and then stamped it off.  I spritzed the stamp a second time and then stamped it on some Ranger water color paper (on the smooth side) and this is the result.  Love how it looks.  Added some yellow Stickles to the center of the flower and then edge the piece with Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  The sentiment (comes with the stamp) was stamped using Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black.  Mounted the piece on olive card stock.   Kept it simple to let the image shine.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! Old Olive, Ranger water color paper; Stamps:  Penny Black; Inks:  Ranger Distress Markers, Memento Luxe, Delicata Golden Glitz; Yellow Stickles

Oh I like the way it looks too Rosi. I love that beautiful poinsettia and how you stamped your sentiment over it at the bottom. I am back from Florida now.
