ABC Challenge

This weeks ABC Challenge ask that we add buttons to our project, so this gives me the opportunity to share another of the sample cards I have been working on for Sir Stampalot's Christmas Launch next weekend using the fab new release Penny Black stamps.

Well, it's cutsie again......need to watch myself here this could be a new addiction. This one is Penny Black 4008J stamped stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear, once into the aperture cut with Nesties though the Bug and a second time cut out and decoupaged. Both were coloured with Promarkers and glittered with crystal. The holly is from Penny Black Banner of Joy, another of the new releases which I stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured with brilliance inks before shrinking. The DP is again one of the new Christmas designs from My Minds Eye, the edge punches with Martha Stewart snowflakes, ribbon and buttons added to embellish. The greeting is the same one I used on yesterdays card, Penny Black 3995F.
