Monochromatic Bells

As much as I love traditional Christmas colours, I opted for a monochromatic card this time using Altenews Bells and Bows stamp set.

To start with I chose a selection of grey inks and with a stamping platform stamped all three layers working from light to dark.  For the bows I used the darkest grey from the bells and black as the final layer.  Both bells have been clear embossed and a touch of Wink is on the bows.

Thanks to the dull whether the 'Merry' on the top photo looks black when in reality its been heat embossed with silver, only the words above and below are stamped in black.  To finish I attached to a black card base with foam for a small amount of dimension.
