Magenta Super Saturday - Christmas Decorations

Welcome back to my blog and Magenta Super Saturday. Today I used two stamps from Magenta’s 2021 Fall and Christmas release.  You can also see my card on the Magenta blog here

I stamped the Christmas Decoration stamp on a piece of white cardstock using my MISTI by placing the cardstock in the left corner.  I also stamped the image separately on a piece of masking paper, then cut out the image and placed it over the image stamped on the cardstock.  I left the stamp in my MISTI.  
Since I needed to stamp the script stamp twice to fill the background of the card, I practiced the next step a couple of times on scrap paper.  I found that the Christmas Song stamp was very easy to line up. I put the stamped image (with the mask on top) in the right corner of my MISTI, then positioned the Christmas Song stamp on the top section.  I stamped with Gray Smoke VersaFine ink, then repositioned the stamp to the bottom section of the card and stamped again. 
I removed the mask, then colored the image with Caran D’Ache Luminance pencils – I love these pencils because they blend so well.  Once I was done coloring, I returned the stamped image to my MISTI, restamped the Christmas Decoration image using VersaMark ink, and embossed with gold embossing powder.  I trimmed the image to 3 ¾” x 5”, matted it with a piece of dark green cardstock cut to 4” x 5 ¼”, then adhered it to a white A2 card.  I added a few sequins for a little bit of sparkle. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
