Purple and Blue Christmas Baubles

The new overlay baubles designed by Barbara Gray are simply gorgeous.  For my first sample I played with only one stamp, the masks and some Distress Oxides.
Apply Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides to the solid Happy Christmas Bauble stamp with a blending tool and stamp onto a piece of 7” x 7” Clarity stencil card.
Mask over the stamping and repeat the previous step. Continue masking and stamping in the same manner, adding in Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide inks until the stencil card is covered.

Clean the stamp by spritzing it with water and stamping off the ink onto a piece of stencil card 4cm x 7”.
Mat up the strip onto black card leaving a narrow border top and bottom.
Trim the background to 6.75” x 6.75” and add it to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
Lay the strip across the card and glue into place.
To finish add one of the Christmas and celebrations word stickers.
