more Christmas

Hello, my friends. the idea for these cards was once again derived from the current LIM challenge.

My first instinct was to make the kraft based card. So I stamped the ribbon sentiment and the stars in versamark and embossed with white detail embossing powder. I then coloured in using Faber Castell pencils - polychromos. I then added Finnabair glitter in matching hues to the stars and finally went around a square die with a white sharpie and added diamond sprinkles.

Whilst making the above, I started thinking what it would look like in different colours. So I went for the black first. This time I 'coloured it in' using glitters.

And the last one is on ivory card and embossed with tree branch embossing powder that my friend gave me a few days ago. The glitter is a brown glitter glue. The outline is with fossilized amber distress marker which I felt matched quite well.

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:

Less is more - OLC: coloring in
Simon says stamp Monday challenge - it's written in the stars
Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge - stamptember stamp it
HLS September CAS - silhouette (stars)
