Bright and Beautiful

It's time for four more cards for the next 'Tis the Season's color challenge.  So far I've managed to keep up with my "resolution"...making four cards every time this challenge is posted.  If I do that I'll have my Christmas cards done by mid October next year for Christmas 2014.  I think I'll like that. :)  I almost didn't come close to keeping it up for this week's card.  I love how they turned out, but they were also a little bit of work...make that a LOT of work! lol   Don't forget to head over to 'Tis the Season to check out what the other designers made and to play along using this week's color combo...Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Midnight Muse.  I loved working with these colors.  The optional trimming is embossing.  I did plenty of that on these cards!  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

    1. Thanks, Margaret. I brayered the background now that I know how to do it. :)

  4. Beautiful!!! How did you do them?

    1. Thank you. :) The card takes a few steps to make, but I think it's worth it! First I used black StazOn to stamp the image. Then I colored in the shadowed parts of the stamp with stampin' write markers. Next I used the blender pen to blend the colors. After that I colored in everywhere that I have color with a versa Marker making sure I didn't go outside the lines. Then I covered it with clear embossing powder and heated it. Last I brayered the background with Rich Razzleberry and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. I hope all of that makes sense! If you have anymore questions I'd be glad to answer them.


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
