A Festive Bookshelf (by Debbie)

I look forward to the summer holidays as I usually start my Christmas cards and this year I've decided quickly which stamps I'll use for my own cards that I'll be sending out. The bookshelf stamp colours so well and is so detailed.
I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with Clear Wow powder. The colouring is done with a mix of Copic and Promarker Pens. The edges have been softened with Antique Linen Distress Ink and I left the Die in place so it kept a white edge. I layered onto red, cut the base card and folded to make an easel card. Thanks for stopping by and if you leave a comment Thank you. Debbie

  4. Debbie, your card is beautiful! It's well colored, and I LOVE the die you used to cut it - what it is? Very nice! Hugs, Clare xxoo

  5. Your softening with Antique Linen is terrific with the pale blue base & the bright red/white combination. I especially like the way you've used the pale blue & mauve for the ornaments & how you picked that up with the blue base too. Just lovely.
