Deep Red Stamp Christmas Horn

I love this elegant Christmas horn stamp by Deep red stamps. You can purchase it at A Cherry on Top. Be sure to sign up for emails from ACOT because they have some awesome sales coming up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They also have a fabulous clearance section

This image is perfect to color in with gold distress stains by Ranger Industries. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper by Strathmore using Hero Arts black ink and other then the gold the other parts of the horn were colored in with distress markers. I like how in the second card I was able to do some shading but the photo isn't the best however the close up is pretty good to get an idea of how you can shade with distress markers. 

The patterned papers and border sticker are by K an Co except in the first card the plaid paper is by Martha Stewart and in the second card the green patterned paper the sticker sentiment is on is by Pink Paislee. 

For the image in the first card I fussy cut it out and then adhered it to two Spellbinders dies. The second card the image was colored and then die cut by the Label 4 Spellbinders die. The square punch for the SRM Sticker sentiment is by Creative Memories.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
