Challenges


This week's CBH challenge is to use alcohol inks. This week's Cuttlebug challenge is to emboss on a die cut. I inked up some gold matte paper with Lettuce and Stream alcohol inks, cut the ornament shape with a Cuttlebug Die, then embossed it using two Cuttlebug folders, and added some Stickles on the roofs of the houses.I cut an ornament shape from chipboard as well and glued the paper to the chipboard, for a little more stability. Then I outlined the ornament with gold krylon ink, and stamped the sentiment (from Quietfire Design). The little pearls are from "Kaiser Scrapbooking." Thanks for taking the time to visit today!

Your ornament is fabulous. Love the colors and the design.
To answer your question. I used Stream. butterscotch and Wild Plum. Then I added Gold Mixative. Went over the top with the Plum again. It show up a little darker than it actually is.
