Tis The Season at FSC


Hello, time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this time, Dot has chosen the theme of 'Tis the Season'.   This could be Autumn or if you're like me starting to make your Christmas cards, well.... it's THAT season!
We have Flonzcraft as our Sponsor for this challenge and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.

I've used a Christmas Greetings from Flonzcraft for my card.  I started by dipping some card into Tarnished Brass and Brushed Pewter stains mixed with Ice Spruce Distress ink, it has a lovely sheen, which of course doesn't show in the photo.  I stamped using Ice Spruce DI, and on a spare piece of the card, stamped the Christmas Greeting again.  I coloured the robins and holly with DI's.
I also stamped and cut a Tim Holtz holly spray with Peeled Paint DI, heat embossed with clear EP before colouring with DIs.
The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration, so please pop over here where you will find all the details of the challenge, but don't forget, we are a stamping challenge and your stamping must follow the challenge theme.
Well, that's another one for the box, but I think I need to make a few more.

I am entering this at Stamping Sensations - Christmas Greetings

Have a great day,
Avril xx

Lovely creation for this months theme Avril, it really does put me in mind of a Victorian Christmas card, the colours and design all lend themselves to the era. Have a good Sunday.
