'Use an Un-inked Stamp'
(or one that's not seen any ink in a while)
The winner of this challenge will get to guest design for one of next month's challenges!
I'm usually quite good at inking up new stamps...they don't tend to sit around for long before I use them (papers on the other hand...), but as I was looking through my Christmas stamps, I found a sweet little Hero Arts set called 'Enjoy the Season' that I'd bought in the post-Christmas sales and (to my shame) never used! I stamped the tree in black, then 'coloured' the branches using 'Soft Gold' Cosmic Shimmer pigment, then mounted them on to my cards (to make up for not having used the stamp, I made three cards!) matted with some gold mirror card. These cards are quite dinky...4 inches square - a great size, as you can cut 3 from an A4 sheet of card, and perfect for 'production line' Christmas crafting!
