November's Challenge asks players to use a regular, every day stamp to create a Christmas themed project. Be sure to check out this link to see all the details and inspirational ideas.The Raven is a bird often associated with Halloween but I wanted to connect it to Christmas for this challenge. Ravens have a good reputation here so I am quietly easing the bird into a Christmas role. Here is what I created...
I returned to the background above the raven and stamped the dotted swirl image by Magenta.
The Wplus9 "merry" sentiment is stamped in black ink and embossed in clear. The white shadow is added by hand for additional emphasis. The card is finished with a Prima border stamped image.
I had so much fun making this card I am really thinking about adjusting the design to create a small canvas for my work space. Hope you had a merry time playing this challenge too!
Happy creative stamping!...Jan
