Made for Chat Challenge



Here are two cards for the Chat challenge at scs... We can only use flourishes stamps along with only colors of red white and Black. Although I'm not very happy with the picture of the tree because all the stars did not seem to show up, but life goes on! The tree is from flourishes that I stamped in black then added a red trunk that I layered on nesties. I put plastic clear star beads along with some small red dot ones on the Christmas tree just with glue but it still needed more. More seems to be what I like. I then added spots to the nesties with a black and white gel pen. I used stamping up punches and the middle was stamped out with a corner punch, that I took the corner off . Then all was layered and more dots were added then placed on right top of card with a glue dot, then two colors of ribbon to the bottom.
Second card: more red white and black stamped image with Stampin up real red ink added birds then all was clear embossed then it was once again layered on some nesties... all back ground paper is layers of black and white, top layer added red and white ribbon (two sided ribbon) then added image on nesties with glue. still needed more...me and that more word... Added red and white dotted brads and then words framed out with layered paper that says come fly with me... But Even though I do not like to fly I like my feet planted on the ground most of the time the saying with this stamp set is really perfect I think!!!
