Marvelous Monochrome at Charisma

Good morning. Hopefully Mr Blogger has played nicely and has published the first of my scheduled posts for me whilst I'm sitting by the poolside in Montego Bay on my jolly holibobs :o)

Today sees a new challenge over at

and this week Team Gem are sharing their DT projects for the challenge theme of


Here's what I did:

I stamped the Indigo Blu images - 'Here Comes Santa' onto Crafter's Companion Centura Pearl cardstock using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White EP.

Then I inked all over with Tim Holtz Iced Spruce Distress Ink from the Limited Edition Winter Colours.

Sentiment stamped and inked in the same way and then die cut using Spellbinders Grommet Tags and attached using some white brads from stash.

Some simple mat and layering onto co-ordinating card. I also stamped the snowflake image around the base card using Iced Sprue Distress Ink before mounting the image panel.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.
