March Rudolph Day


It's time for Rudolph Day and if you don't know what it's all about pop on over to Mo's blog for the rules.

If you follow my blog you may have seen this stamp very recently! Whilst I had it out I decided to go for another look with it, this time using the oxides in bolder colours against an embossed resist. I faux bleached the leaves and then painted back in with the lucky clover oxide ink. Instead of flicking water at the image I used my paint brush for more deliberate placing of the "spots".

Your technique described has produced a stunning card. The holly image is lovely and perfect combined with your beautiful inky background.

Thanks for taking part in the MArch Rudolph Days Challenge.
