Hang Your Stocking Christmas Card and Spray Technique

It's always good to play with the other images in the stamp set.  I don't often do that.  I tend to play with the few I really like and don't bother with the other images. So today I thought I would give some of those other images a try!!! Like that little stamped stocking.  I've been playing a lot with the Thinlits and not so much with the stamping.

This card has a lot of fun elements.  I used a jingle bell, some red Baker's Twine, a paper doily and pompom ribbon.  

For my technique here, I took some rubbing alcohol and put it in a misting bottle.  I added about 10 to 15 drops of Emerald Envy inker, shook it up to mix it and sprayed the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper. If you don't completely saturate the paper, the center will remain white to light color. I even turned my pieces over and sprayed the back to get a better saturation.  If you are going to use this on your card, do it first so it has time to dry while you work on your card.  What's fun about this is, you have lots of different colors of inkers, that means you have lots of different colors of glitter paper!!!!  How fun is that?  Imagine the doors that just opened up here!!!  

The base of my card is Basic Black.  A non traditional Christmas color for a card.  Crumb Cake was the layer on top.  My decorative paper came from the "Candy Cane Lane" Designer Series Paper pack.  It was a fun card to make!!! I love the busyness of it!  It keeps my eye moving around the card.

This was one of the cards I made for Terri's FABULOUS Holiday Extravaganza.  I was SO happy to be a part of it!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
