Butlers Abroad

Colonising the Colonies one blog at a time…


on November 7, 2013

This is the last of the simple cards I made at the weekend using semi solid stamps and Ranger Holographic embossing powder.  It’s another of the large images from the Inkadinkado Christmas Silhouettes clear set.

This is another card that’s very sparkly in real life but the camera doesn’t pick it up too well.  It’s picking up the satin ribbon very nicely though, making it all bright and shiny and rather bright orange/red when in fact, it’s a bit darker than that in real life, more like the ink colour of the reindeer.

Card Recipe:

  • Card: Black from Michaels ~ White and burgundy from The Paper Company
  • Stamps: Inkadinkado Christmas Silhouettes ~ Penny Black Winter Wonder’s clear set
  • Ink: ColourBox Q Burnt Copper
  • Embellies: Ranger Holographic EP ~ Ribbon from Michaels
  • Tools: Heat Gun

    I have my Christmas hat on again. It is strange how the camera plays tricks on certain colours even when on the same card. I was going to say that I rather liked the contrast that isn’t! Thank you for joining in at Crafty Hazelnuts Extra this month. Hugs Mrs A. (GDT).
