Merry Dasher

Last week my Merry Monday card was chosen as a winner. Thanks Lesley :)
Which means I get to be a guest designer for this week’s Merry Monday challenge.  YAY!
Here is the wonderful sketch we got to work with.
Sketch 20

I decided to use my Dasher stamp for the first time this year.


I brayered the background using mustard and cherry at the top and wisteria and baja at the bottom.  Then I stamped various christmas images over the top of the brayering using crumb cake.
Dasher was then stamped using a mixture of espresso and champagne mist shimmer paint.  He is actually a nice sparkly, rich espresso colour but that was a bit hard to capture in the photo.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Dasher, winter post, lovely as a tree, tiny tags
Card : espresso, crumb cake, white, dsp (ret.)
Ink : espresso, baja, wisteria, mustard, cherry
Other : linen thread, rhinestones, tag punch, mat pack, white pen, big shot, square lattice ef, brayer

Please take a look at what the rest of the design team have created for Merry Monday this week and play along too.
