Quixotic Paperie #3 - Joy to the World
Hello crafty friends!! Hope you are well today!
Welcome to the 3rd Quixotic Paperie Challenge!! This week it is my turn to chose the theme and I have chosen the colour combo of Kraft and Red. If you don't have Kraft cardstock feel free to substitute it for brown.
Remember you can combine this challenge with as many others as you like and all entries will be in with a chance of winning a £20 gift Voucher from Quixotic Paperie!!
Today for my card I have gone for something a little different! I have used lots of embossing , painting and distressing on this card....i.e lots of mess!!
For the Kraft background I stamped the Magnolia Silent Night Stamp in Versamark ink and them embossed it in white. The edges were then distressed with 'Frayed Burlap'.
I then coloured the 'JOY' letters from the stamp set from CC Designs with copics and have 3D-ed Baby Jesus in the manger. The other letters were plain chipboard thickers which I painted with 'Picket Fence' Crackle Paint and then the edges were distressed.
The snowflake is made from a Spellbinders die which I have covered with Art Glitter...awesome stuff!! I drew and cut out the little music notes...ha ha don't laugh!!
Hope I haven't bored you too much with all the little details....I never know how much to share or whether you have all fallen asleep before the end of the post!! LOL! But then some of you are maybe beginners and appreciate knowing how a certain effect was achieved. I certainly learnt lots of new stuff from others when I was starting out. I still do!!....ok...ok...I will shut up now!!!
Don't forget to check out the Quixotic Paperie Challenge blog for some more inspiration!
Catch you tomorrow for the Sugar Bowl,
