Berries in snowPosted: December 17, 2014
This ‘Berry Merry Christmas‘ stamp has been one of my favourite stamps this season and I don’t seem to be the only one. I have seen many lovely cards and projects starring this image. The panel above is from the pile of bits & pieces I’ve had waiting quite a while for attention, consequently I can’t remember my process. It appears to be ‘wet on wet’ stamping onto watercolour paper with distress stains. I have stamped the image at least twice and allowed the colours to bleed a lot on the left hand side. I did the snow splatter a little differently for this one; I splattered white gesso over the panel after the inks had dried. I still used the splatter brush but the gesso sits on top of all the stamping. I finished it off by adding a sentiment, matting in brown and attaching it to a white card base.
I think writing in a few more of my Christmas cards is what I should be doing now. There are only eight days until Christmas after all!
Thanks for dropping by.
