Ivy trails from Chocolate Baroque

Hi there, woo hoo weekend at last and now I've got a week off work . I'm planning on lots of lazing around, plenty of crafting and not much else lol, but before i get on with that here's a Christmas card using some of the new clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this time I've used 'Ivy Trails' which you can find here

I stamped the images in black archival ink except for the sentiment which I stamped with versamark and embossed with gold detail WOW embossing powder. I coloured the image with distress markers and lightly inked around the edges with tea dye and pumice stone distress inks. I've used gold mirri card and  ivy green card for matting and layering. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Anything goes challenge: Early Christmas
LEJ Designs: Winter wishes
Papelitos STamps: anything goes
Penny Black and More: Early Christmas makes

  1. The way you coloured those ivy leaves is so effective especially with the splashes of red in the berries picking out the poinsettia . Love your mounting & the real traditional feel to this.
