Have you given up on me?

Hi! I swear, I've been stamping. I just have been on a kick to get things submitted. So, I promise to have a few things to share with you soon.

I did happen to see Jeanne and Sherrie's Challenge today... Just Because We Wanna (JBWW). The challenge was to make a black and white card with a splash of color. These are TOUGH. I think the main image really has to be stunning to pull this off.


So... I gave it a shot.
This Santa Portrait is amazing, isn't it? I love the detail. He looks so life-like and stamping it in black and white is perfect. I purchased him from Stamp Francisco about a month ago and have just inked him today. What was I waiting for?!?!?

The card base was stamped with the Petite Pattern Backgrounder by CHF. The splash of color came from my Kitchen Sink Stamps - holly, which I trimmed with precision scissors and added with a dimensional. The greeting is also from the KSS 3 Step Holly and Mistletoe set. I added a quick bit of grosgrain ribbon and completed the card. To get the ribbon to lay in a flowing manner, I adhered it in several spots with mini-glue dots. I saw this on the fabulous Sharon Johnson's blog (No Time to Stamp?).

Thanks for hanging with me... I promise to post again soon,

Lisa

  6. What an absolute stunner of a stamp! Perfect for this kind of 'simple' treatment since it's so detailed in its own right. Love the way you've got the flowing effect on the ribbon - fabulous card!
