Woodware Nativity Silhouette Two-fer

Hi Bloggers.

I have a couple of simple cards for you today featuring the Woodware Nativity Silhouette Stamp Set.

Here's your first card -

The background is a mopped up waste ink background on Coconut White Card with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides. Inked around the edges with Faded Jeans. Dusted with Anti-Static Pad then a couple of the stamps from the Vintage Nativity Silhouette Stamp Set stamped using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Mirage Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. Sentiment stamped with Onyx Black Versafine and embossed with CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. Matted onto Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card blank.

Here's your second card -

For this one, I dusted Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Pad. I stamped several of the images from the Woodware Nativity Silhouette Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I folded the card several times, turned it over and folded some more. I spritzed with water and then brayered Faded Jeans and Iced Spruce Oxides over - very important : don't put a wet brayer into your ink pad! I removed excess ink from the images using a piece of Kitchen Roll.

Once dry, I cut out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Background Rectangles and cut a mat out of Black Card using the next sized die in the set.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I added Faded Jeans and Iced Spruce Oxides using Smoothies and removed excess ink with Kitchen Roll. I cut out using a die from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics and matted onto Black Card. I added it to my card using CE Mounting Cushion.
