Christmas more to come

Well I guess I might as well face it...I am in the Christmas is another card that I have created that was inspired off my TC. I think it is pretty cute myself.

This card was created by stamping the focal image in Noir ink and then coloring the holly with a tombow marker and using the blender pen to make the marks nice and smooth. I use glossy cardstock for this as it is a bit more forgiving.

Once this was done I then took a Glaze pen and outlined the veins in the leaves and set it aside
I punched the scalloped circle out and using our white gel pen i marked each scallop in the middles.

I also stamped the Christmas sentiment in white ink and then embossed with transcendence powder to make it pop and mounted on the green cardstock to match the focal image.

The background was achieved with the Deco Designs frond stamped with Burnt umber. A softer
appearance for the background can be achieved by stamping off first

Once I was ready to mount I took a hydra sponge and tapped into my burnt umber and then lightly tapped my focal circle to age it a bit. It wound up a bit darker than I wanted but it still looks good.

All items from The Angel Company. If you are interested in further scans or step by step instructions or product please let me know and I will be glad to help.
