CBH Challenge for Dec 2nd

What a wonderful challenge. And of course what better way than to use it for "MORE" Xmas cards. Sheesh. I'm stock piling here. Well this week's CBH Challenge was to use "Red & Green". I had just checked out Tim Holtz blog again and he's running the 12 days of Christmas tags, doing one per day. One of the techniques I decided to use for this week's challenge. Alcohol inks on glossy white cardstock. I also accidentally created a ghost image again (similar to my Glass ATC's I made in August). I also used one of the sentiment stamps from Suzanne's 2008 Xmas rubber stamp set. You can read all about the details and see the other card as well by clicking on the image above. Enjoy. PS this is an aside - I just finished decorating my xmas envelopes, using Suzanne's snowflake word sentiment stamps, both sizes. I used Versafine "Smokey Grey" on the large stamp and then over stamped, centering the stamp over the large one and having the word prongs fall inbetween the larger ones. I used Satin Red on the smaller stamp. Looks soooo good.

Gorgeous red and green card. The ghost effect is so beautiful. Are you considering letting us see one of the envelopes that you have double stamped?
