Woodware challenge week 26 - Pick a Colour

        Christmas Stockings Evening Everyone,
Sorry I've been missing for a few days but it has been one of those weeks, again!!
I have been trying all week to get this posted, but I keep forgetting to take pictures, and it gets dark so early now. This week over on the Woodware Blog  the challenge is to 'Pick a colour and go with it.'
Like Pam the Pampered Stamper, I have chosen to go with blue.
The main stamped image is by Magenta 40.194M Christmas Stockings. I stamped and embossed it and then sponged it with inks from the Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor ink pad.
I painted parts of the stocking with bleach, before pouring crystal embossing powder over the entire thing.
The background to the card is made from a piece card from a GCD paper pack Rockets Red Glare which has been stamped using the holly from FRCL174 Holly Swirls, a clear stamp set, using a versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder. The holly leaves and dots have then been painted with bleach. I cut the circular panel using a Grand Nestie and added part of it to the right hand side of a square card.
The greeting is also from the same clear stamp set. Being a clear stamp I was able to bend it on the block so that it matched the curve of the circle.
Another shape cut with a nestie, some Woodware ribbon, pearls and faux stitching and you have another Christmas card to add to my pile.
I even used the left over bits to make another card, but I will have to share that with you tomorrow, cause it got to dark to take pictures lol.
I would also like to enter this into the  Bloggers Challenge where you are asked to use your favourite colours.
Must get some sleep now.
Have a good weekend.
