Marcia is hosting the CAS Christmas challenge and I knew right away what I wanted to use for her gray and red color scheme.
The Vintage Lantern is from PTI, stamped with gray Altenew inks. I cut three more lanterns from white, stacked them together and sandwiched vellum between those and the stamped one. Using an embossing pen, I colored the corner of the 'glass' and the roof and embossed with Puff embossing powder adding a touch of glitter. The sentiment was stamped directly to the card base and the lantern secured over it. The bow is from PinkFresh colored with alcohol markers.

Oh, fun! What a winning design this is, Bobby! I love the weathered look of the lantern and how you added the bits of snow and the vellum for the glass - cloudy, just like it would be! The bow adds a ton of interest! Hugs, Darnell (CCCC GD)ReplyDelete
