Hi Ya! Here with a card for the new Less is More challenge to use the color blue and not just one shade of blue, but several. So when I started thinking about what I would do I knew that I would probably be using my distress inks for my card. Then I went cruising around the blog-o-sphere and stopped for a moment at Penny Black challenge blog (#158) and saw that the challenge is to use your most favorite Penny Black stamp... one you would take to a deserted island. Well... for me that stamp is the PB Christmas Star! I adore that stamp and have done lots of other things with it besides make Christmas cards. So, I had my colors and my stamp and so I got to work.
I stamped the Christmas Star twice on white cardstock using VersaMark watermark ink, applied clear embossing powder and then heat set. I then got out my distress inks (Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Saphire) and did some distressing using the emboss/resist method. The two stars were trimmed out and the one inked with Faded Jeans and Chipped Saphire was cut in half. I adhered the two pieces the white cardstock slightly apart and then the one inked with Broken China and a touch of Faded Jeans was adhered on top. Some SU! glass glitter in Baja Breeze was added to the center. I stamped the "to You" portion of the PB sentiment "to You from Me" in the corner and added the rhinestones. I will be putting this card into the Penny Black Saturday challenge, as well as Less is More.
Thanks for taking a peek....
