Our last challenge for 2021 is to use some "glitz" on your card - of course a Christmas card is a perfect choice for some glitz!!  I used a technique from Yana - ink blending over embossing.

I began by stamping the holly leaves with Versamark around the edge on a piece of kiwi cs  and embossing in gold.  Then I used rustic wilderness, peeled paint and black soot DO inks around the edges - when finished I used a microfiber cloth to remove the ink from the embossed gold.  Die cut the sentiment in gold and three more layers of black, glued together and centered on card.  The little green berries are also Hero Arts from ages ago (ya think I'm a hoarder??).


Our generous sponsor, Hero Arts, is giving away two gift cards to our winners this month - so be sure to enter by 26 November at hashtag #abnhnovemberchallenge and tag @ablognamedhero.

Thanks for visiting today.



  1. So elegant looking Betty. It's so beautiful

  2. You used that technique to perfection, Betty! I never think to use colored cardstock with a plan to do some ink blending, but maybe now I will!

  3. The greens and gold look so nice together. Fab take on this technique, Betty.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
