Just Us Girls #419 - Trend Week

Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess over at Just Us Girls this week, and it's our Trend Week.  I saw Jennifer McGuire do a video on silhouette stamping a while ago and thought it would be good for this trend week challenge.
I was at my LSS last week and came upon this Penny Black stamp set.  I thought it would look good stamped in black, so I bought it.  I wish my photo taking skills were better.  This card looks so washed out, when it really isn't!  I started by sponging some oxide inks onto a piece of Bristol white cardstock.  I left it lighter around the manger.  Then I stamped the images in Versafine onyx black.  I wanted to spatter it with some copic white paint, but I didn't want it to get all over the images, so I just used a white get pen.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment.  Starting to get those Christmas cards done!
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest on the JUGs blog.

That is a great stamp, Lisa, and your background is glorious. The lighter color around the manger is so fitting.

I love, love, love this card. I even looked up the stamp set and had to sit on my hands to keep from ordering it. It's awesome, and so is what you have done with it. Your background is gorgeous!
