This is my card for this week's Bah Humbug challenge, which is Trees and decided to keep it very simple. I actually had it made in plenty of time to post it yesterday, but I as I didn't have a dark blue ribbon I decided to colour some white. I had used Distress Ink in Denim to stamp the image and as I couldn't find a marker the right colour I decided to us the ink pad. I discovered that Distress Inks do not actually work too well because they take so long to dry. I had blue fingers and wasted a couple sheets of card, I even rubbed it with kitchen towel, all to no avail. So decided to leave it overnight, and I still managed to mark the card slightly when trying to put it together, this morning but decided I could cover the inky mark with the toppers. The image is from an unmounted Elusive Images Christmas plate. Sorry there is a bit of shadow on the card, that is because I have got sunshine streaming in throught the windows, which is reflecting off the awful white stuff still lying around, deep and crisp and even.
I am going to enter this card into the SaturdaySpotlight Challenge as well, which is Clean and Simple.
Thank you for visiting today and for any comments which you may wish to make. I appreciate them very much. Beryl x
