This "NOEL" stamp has just been released today by Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I used the same layout as I did yesterday which was SC187, this week's sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.
Please see my last post for details on the steps to begin creating the background patterned paper.
Once I created a panel of patterned paper using Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps and Brilliance inks, I cut it equally into 3 slim panels as per the sketch challenge. I kept yesterday's card a bright white background but for today's I brushed the edges using Adirondack latte. I did the same to the NOEL panel.
I then decided to outline each panel with a gold pen to mimick another layer without the bulk of more card. I use Posh impressions gold pen but you can use Krylon or similar.
I like to press the edge of the card into the centre of the pen creating a V-shape in the nib. I then keep the pen for this purpose. It's amazing how straight the gold lines are.
I then outlined all 4 panels with the gold marker.
I mounted the panels on black cardstock and then green.
The green scalloped panel behind NOEL was actually hand drawn with a black pen and cut out. The NOEL panel is mounted on foam tape.
Stickles: black diamond, Xmas red and holly
Gingham ribbon to finish.
