Hello! Today I'm using a "technique" that I struggle with - using stamps that are not holiday themed for Christmas cards! The scientist mind of mine sometimes doesn't like to think outside the box. It's why I have trouble mixing companies and products sometimes!
I started by blending on some colors of Distress Oxide inks so that my background would be light in the middle and dark on the edges. Then I took my darkest color of Oxide ink and stamped the main image from the Mama Elephant Water Blooms stamp set. I made sure to rotate the image each time I stamped so that it wouldn't look like the same image over and over again. Then I added some dots of silver embossing. The sentiment is from WPlus9 Be Merry.
I did the same thing but with a red background and gold embossing!
