Holly heartfeltPosted: December 16, 2015
“Holly Heartfelt” sounds like a cartoon character to me! I have paired a Christmas image with a thank you sentiment for today’s card. The PB design team are creating thank you cards this week and next on the PB blog.
I began by splattering some masking fluid on watercolour paper then stamped the ‘holly tweet’ stamp with a combination of distress stain and markers (the leaves were inked with stain). While the ink was still wet I blended it with a brush to fill the outlines and blend the colours. I used tumbled glass distress stain to paint a soft background around the image. Once it was totally dry I removed the masking fluid dots and added some gold splatter and a sentiment. I thought the gold mat and red card base tied in with the berries, bird and gold dots.
Our tree is lit now awaiting some adornment…it’s beginning to look a little more like Christmas.
