Late Inspiration...

It's late inspiration for me tonight... I've had the idea in my head to play with one of my Justrite stamps and combine it with one of my beautiful Whiff of Joy stamps. It took me stamping both images separately to knock out this beautiful holiday card...



I colored both images with my copics and still had problems knocking this design out... There are three attempts on the desk and boy do they look bad. but after grabbing a few scraps laying around on my desk it came together. I even added a few other stamp companies to the mix... I got my hands on Inkadinkado's Winter bird set and loved the idea of the birds flying out of the lamp as a watermark type image... and the sentiment came from one of my Papertrey Ink stamp sets.


There is so much in this card and it is one of my favorites now and I think I'll make a few more to send out this year... Well I'm off for the night I hope you all are ready for the weekend.

Supplies:
Stamps: Believe by Papertrey Ink, Willow holding lantern from Whiff of Joy, just rite Christmas Ensemble,winter Birds by Inkadinkado
Ink: Adirondack pitch black, versamark
Cardstock: glorious green, creamy caramel, riding hood red, naturals ivory
Accessories: copics, silver embossing powder, rhinstone sticker, dimensionals, scallop punch, circle nestablibities.
