Let's Squash It - challenge 2 - take 2

 I'm back today to share a fun card I made for the Let's Squash it Challenge.  The challenge is: Use a Christmas embossing folder and a stamp on your card.    

I haven't had a great deal of success trying the technique of inking up an embossing folder but this afternoon I tried it with a piece of watercolour paper and some Eucalypts ink by Catherine Pooler,  I used my brayer to add the ink to the folder and then gave my card a spritz of water before running it through my Cuttlebug.   Best success so far!  I trimmed the panel and added to some pearlised cream card.  I used some more of the watercolour paper to stamped and gold emboss a Pointsetta stamp from a Penny Black set.  I used Catherine Pooler Rockin' Red and Peppermint Scrub inks to do an artsy watercolour.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you come back shortly, you'll see my Sweet Stampin' Challenge post.
Edited:  Thanks Jo for reminding me that I can enter this into the challenge at Christmas Kickstart too... same  challenge theme!
