Bells & Boughs

Not exactly the relaxing stamping I was after tonight, but that's OK, I did create something!! And I mounted a new set and used it!! Here is what I did for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch of the week:

The set is Bells & Boughs from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog. Card base is Soft Suede, with a tight background layer of Crumb Cake behind 2 pieces of Deck the Halls DSP, a Cherry Cobbler script and Soft Suede print. Across the center. where the DSP meets I put Sticky Strip and attached the new Champagne Glass Glitter. The image was stamped twice on Very Vanilla CS and watercolored with Blender Pens & Classic Ink in Cherry Cobbler & Always Artichoke. Oh, also a hint of Soft Suede on the branches. Instead of coloring the center of the flowers I attached a glue dot and more glitter! Might be too much, I'm still deciding. Not overly complex, but I think it was the coloring that stressed me tonight.  Cherry Cobbler is such a rich color it was hard to get it right.

It's all OK, I'll just have a glass of wine before heading to bed! Tomorrow is another day and I hope to be back with something else stamped!! I'm telling myself I'm getting up and moving to get things done so I can stamp by afternoon!!! We shall see. Have a good Monday all!!
