elegant christmas


This is for sketch challenge SC150. I bought this bronze paper the other day at Mike's and was shopping last night at Target where I was looking at Christmas stuff. They had a wonderful collection of oranaments in brown, gold, and bronze. I wanted to capture the elegance of that. I didn't add a lot of fussiness to this card so that end. For the ornament I circle cut a piece of cardstock vellem and stamped the flourish from CartePostale in versamark and then brushed over that with Sparkle Gold and Sunset Gold Pearl Ex. I used the lighter gold in the center of the ornament and the darker around the edges for some depth. I sealed it with hair spray 'cause I am out of sealer right now. Thanks so much for stopping by!
