Graphicus November Challenge - Resistance Is Futile!

Well, I thought as I haven't made many Xmas cards yet I'd make this one do for a challenge as well. The Graphicus November challenge was to make something using resist technique and 'metallics'.

I have used the 'Following Yonder Star' themeplate from Elusive Images and resist embossed the words and star onto glossy card using versamark ink. I have brayered over this with a speedball brayer and a 'Big and Juicy' Waterfall ink pad. The Kings image was embossed in gold and then watercoloured with Derwent Inktense pencils. I cut this out and mounted it on corrugated card. The card has been embellished with ribbon, gold card candy 'rivets' and gold snowflake punches.

I've now made four Xmas cards so far this year!!! Oh heck, please hold back Xmas for me!! lol


  1. Came here from the Graphicus blog to comment but got side tracked by Hansi!
    Love the embossing and your background.

  2. Hi just found your blog and think your Card is really well done. I have just started crafting and don't I'm very good but I still enjoy the trying and the excuse to get all stuck up with glue and glitter. Wish I could make a card as good as this. Well done.

  3. Lovely card, thanks for playing along in the challenge.
