Dangling Ornaments

For today's card I used a Unity stamp that came in my grab bag last year. It's from the October 2017 Kit of the Month called Conspiracy of Love

To create my card I:
  • stamped the Miracle of Nature (Brutus Monroe - Unity) in Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
  • inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide (Ranger)
  • dies cut some branches using the Mini Holiday Greens dies (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
  • splattered on some diluted white paint
  • stamped the ornaments from Conspiracy of Love on kraft card stock in Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
    • added some highlights with red/green Touch five Markers  and fussy cut
    • stamped my Versamark Watermark pad over them and added Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel before heat setting
    •  added three tiny Baker's twine bows to the top
  • matted my card front on black card stock and added three red sequins
  • embossed my card front with the 3D Lumber embossing folder (Sizzix - Tim Holtz), inked it with Ground Espresso Distress Ink (Ranger), spritzed with water, and heat set
