Joy in Triple-Time Stamping

Here's another Triple-Time stamping card.

Saturday, after doing some stamp work, I was cutting pieces for this technique, and my friend had out this stamp.  It's one of the really large SU stamps, but I LOVE it so much!

I stamped in in Old Olive - after experimenting for awhile with lots of colors, this Olive color just seems right to me for the background.  I like to take time with the markers outlining and accenting other areas of the stamp.

The poinsettias, bell ribbon, and holly berries are outlined in Bravo Burgundy then colored in with Riding Hood Red.
The bell is Daffodil Delight, Bravo Burgundy, and More Mustard.
I also outlined Joy with Always Artichoke but didn't color it in... just as an accent.
All the holly leaves and poinsettia greenery are colored with Certainly Celery, and outlined in places with Wild Wasabi.

I've made only one of these so far, but I think I'll put one of my assembly lines together, and make more of these.  I'll also add some Stickles to this before they go out in the mail. :)
