CAS Christmas Card Colored with White Ink

I love stamping and embossing on black paper!  




I also love tall, skinny cards!




This card is a combination of challenges which inspired the final product.





I stamped the birch trees and sentiment in Versamark, and embossed with silver powder.  I had to use the image 1 1/2 times to reach the height of the card.




Then I "painted" the trees with white ink and a Fantastix that was recycled (I snipped off the ink that was there).


The branch  is cut out a bit to hang the wreath which was stamped with Versamark and embossed with copper powder.  



I used the end of a paint stick to apply the dots with white ink.

The following challenges were my inspiration:
~Papertrey's Make It Monday #25 has a tutorial video to show you how to color with white ink.
~Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #128 calls for Christmas projects.
challenges you to make a 4X9 clean and simple card!





Hey, thanks for peeking in stampy friends. ;)
