Splitcoaststampers' Clean and Simple challenge 143 is a sketch based on a card of another stamper you can find it by clicking on the is my card:
I made my card with a set from W Plus 9 Design Studio(Woodgrain Silhouettes Addition) and sentiment from Hero Arts(Holiday Sayings).  I stamped the leaves with Versamark and clear embossed.  I then covered the paper with Antique Linen distress ink and then sponged with Frayed Burlap distress ink, mostly over the leaves, leaving it a bit lighter in the middle.  Added the sentiment and red rhinestones.  I put the panel on light chipboard for stability after covering with so much was slightly warped without the added adhesive and bulk. I know the colors are not traditional Christmas...I know it's "different"...but I like "different"!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. A fantastic result - you've made me want to try this now... but perhaps I should cook dinner for my family!

  2. Such a simple idea yet it looks absolutely stunning!

  3. Wow wow wow Lisa, I can't believe you coloured that whole panel! Beautiful seamless inking and amazing leaves too :)
