Ivy Trails (posted by Claire)

Hi there, Claire here with a card made with some of the new clear stamps, this time I've used 'Ivy Trails' the beautiful new Christmas stamps. 

I stamped the images in black archival ink except for the sentiment which I stamped with versamark and embossed with gold detail WOW embossing powder. I coloured the image with distress markers and lightly inked around the edges with tea dye and pumice stone distress inks. I've used gold mirri card and  ivy green card for matting and layering. 

Thanks for visiting today and for all your lovely comments.

  2. The way those ivy leaves frame the poinsettia greeting is so effective & the mounting is beautifully traditional.
