Wise Wishes for Less is More Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you all had a lovely weekend :-)

This week on the Less is More Challenge Mandi and Chrissie are asking for one layer with wings :-)
As I have to post so many Christmas cards I think one layer is BRILL,,, cheaper to post ! so I got out my Wise Wishes stamp from Penny Black and inked it up :-)

I used a spellbinders label die to create an embossed frame and used a stamp positioner to get the image placement right, then stamped with Archival ink onto plain white card ,,,, mistake there ,,, I should have used watercolor paper :-/   I used Distress Markers to colour ,,, need more practise  ,,,, I didn’t want to use copics cos they would have shown through on the inside. I then smudged some light blue pan pastels over the background, then added oodles of Star Dust stickles, some crystal glitter, glossy accents and highlighted the cones with a galaxy marker.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I embossed this with clear EP

Thanks for looking ,,, going to go and practice colouring with those markers now ,,,,, :-)

Challenges :
Christmas Stampin' ,,,,, Anything Goes
Sparkles Christmas ,,,,, Traditional ( red & green??)
