On The Third Day of Christmas.

Day 3 of the Frosted Designs 12 days of Chritmas challenge. So thats 3 cards made  for Next year already. Yep I'm on a roll.!

On the Third day of Christmas my True Love said to me please use
3 inks/mists/ paints on your project. The diserning amongst you will probably notice that my stars have 6 points. In my defence the packet does say star punch but then it also says Made in China!

I chose to use Distress Ink in Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire to make the background on my card. These I stamped onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water to  mix and smootched the card stock around to cover.  I used the lighter blue first and then the darker on top to give the feel  of night time. The stars were made by stamping the punch out several times on  a spare piece of card stock and using as a mask on top of the background. I used
Adironadack in Silver which I spritzed onto a sponge dauber . Trees were stamped with the  Chipped Sapphire. So there you have my 3 inks used misted/painted.

I used dark blue craft card for the card itself and mirror card to sandwich the scene in between. Added a blue beaded pin and bow for decoration.

Entering into the following challenges:
Frosted Designs: The Third Day of Christmsas.
Christmas at Sweet Stampin: Anything goes as long as it is Christmassy.
Crafty Hazel Nuts: Anything Goes for Christmas.

Thanks for commenting - sorry to hear about all the hospital visits you are having to make they are such hard work arent they. Hope everyone is feeling ok and that your uncle is out by Christmas - fingers crossed - also you have spurred me on to enter my tree into a load of challenges too - have not been entering anything for ages apart from T!ms stuff once a month so I had completely forgotten I could! Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

You can get such a large range of different items to make a card. Your little picture looks like a photo taken in Sweden or somewhere, with the snow starting to fall. (I'm begining to wish we did have snow instead of all this rain!)

Utterly gorgeous - thank you for entering my CHNC challenge 104 - hope to see you again soon. Happy Christmas. x

Too cute about the stars, ValeryAnne. I like them better with the 6 points, though. Beautiful card with the pretty silver frame and adorned hat pin. The silver EP really makes the card elegant! ((hugs))
