Two more cards using the lovely Classic Holly stamp. This first one is done in pastels. I painted the leaves using a mix of peeled paint distress ink and water. After it was dry I masked it and overstamped in Soft Blossom ink using the Flourish Background. The veins of the leaves and the perimeter were glittered, and I added pink pearls and the sentiment to finish. The beautiful pink cardstock is a gift from Isha; she sent it along with the card she made me for the last Card Chain Challenge in October.
Supplies: white and pink cardstock, Hero Arts CG229 Classic Holly, CG119 Flourish Background, CL343 Holiday Sayings, Versafine Olympia Green and Versafine Onyx black inks, peeled paint distress ink, nesties labels eight, glitter pen and prisma glitter, Hero Arts pale pink pearls
This next one was inspired by a card made by Barb, from the Hero Arts flickr group. I loved her caramel and rich red color scheme. This one was also painted with a mix of pine needles distress ink and water, and fired brick and water for the berries, which were glazed with glossy accents. The music background was stamped in tea dye distress ink and I used it to distress the edges of the top-notch diecut. I finished by adding some twine and a button and cutting my sentiment into 2 little tags.
