Gothic Christmas

Hello everyone, this week on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog, there is a fabulous free digital download, designed by our lovely boss Lesley Wharton. I have created a Christmas card using the download as part of the Design Team inspiration.

I chose to use the Gothic Angels rubber stamp set to create my card, as I felt that this set went with the background so well, and chose to create a Christmas card in red and yellow tones. I coloured a large background stamp with Distress Markers, and stamped it onto card, before adding some clear embossing powder. I trimmed the card, and then edged the card with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. I stamped the angel image and sentiment onto die cuts using Potting Soil Archival Ink, and again edged the shapes with Distress Ink as before. I coloured the angel image with Distress Markers and a water brush. Finally, I matted all of the layers onto burgundy card, before adding them to a large card blank.

Hop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration provided by my team mates and to read about how you could win a £15 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque. Thanks for stopping by, xx

I love the way you've matched the texture of Lesley's download with the text panel from the Gothic Angels set. Your use of the teals in the angel's headband & necklace really stands out beautifully especially with your use of the same colour in the text panel, somehow my eyes notice the angel's jewellery even more because of that text being in the same colour though I can't work out the theory of it being so.
Lovely unusual colouring for a Christmas card.
