Deckled Ombre Holy Night


 Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?  I have a nice little stash started, and this is one of the latest ones that I created.  I used the beautiful new Brightly Shining stamp from Technique Junkies along with a Deckled Rectangle stencil to create this clean and simple card.  Even better, it's perfectly flat for mailing with just one first class postage stamp.

I began by placing the 4" Marvelous Masks Deckled Rectangle stencil (A Colorful Life Designs) over some white cardstock.  With the ink blending brushes, I added Distress Oxide inks starting with Peacock Feathers at the bottom, then Chipped Sapphire in the middle, and finally Wilted Violet at the top.  After I rubbed an anti-static bag over the stenciled inks, I stamped the Brightly Shining sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  

Think of all the different color combos you could use with this stamp.  Change up the embossing powders to silver or gold and try different inks in the background.  Go wild and use neon inks for a really colorful card or go non-traditional with a pink and yellow background.  The possibilities are endless!
