Jingle Belles Christmas Card Challenge

So last year I didn't get a chance at all to participate in any of the Jingle Belles challenges. This year I'm hoping to participate more, and so far so good.  The challenge is to use something new that you may have gotten for Christmas.  As one of my gifts, my husband got me a set of Tim Holtz's Distress Inks. I have never used them before but have been having a lot of fun with them.  I also used the Mojo Monday sketch of the week, but didn't get it linked up in time. 

I tried the resist technique where you emboss using clear ink and clear powder, then inked over the embossing.  The poinsettia is a Lettering Delights SVG file. I inked the leaves and the top layer, and covered the middle layer with the glitter Mod Podge. 


  1. What a fabulous resist effect ... love that big bold bloom & texty ribbon too ... so glad you're starting 2013 with us at jingle belles.
