DT Deni - November Challenge Strips and Stripes

Good Morning Everyone!

DT Deni here,

Today I am showing you the card I have made using a stamp from Gerda Steiner called Deck the Halls. This month we are playing with strips and stripes, I have added a sentiment strip, a strip of extra patterned paper, zig zag stripes paper. Oh and the sentiment which is all striped :-)



To start with I prepared my stamp by rubbing it on my hands to remove the stickiness from the stamp, this allows the ink to apply evenly to the stamp and not all blotchy.
I attached the stamp onto an acrylic block from Lawn Fawn, I then applied some Memento Tuxedo Black to the stamp and stamped it onto Mondi Color Copy 250gsm. I clean my stamps off just using wet baby wipes.

I cut all my layers from a Kaisercraft 6.5" Paper Pad called Santa's List, the base layers are from American Crafts Christmas Paper Pad. All of these were cut on my Caterpillar Pro, and attached using Scotch ATG.
I cut the image out using a Stitched Circle die from Lawn Fawn, the sentiment strip is also cut from a Lawn Fawn Die - Extra Sentiment Banners.
I coloured the image using Copic Markers (list below) and added Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush. I did add a few extra layers to make it nice and glittery.

Last of all once everything was attached i then attached it to a card base from Twiddleybitz.
