I hope you enjoy all those Christmas cards shared on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog this month. There are plenty more to come :)
On this card I used Winter Greetings Bird and Wreath Stamp set. Wreath and birds are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After coloring them with Promarkers I cut them out with scissors. I added some sparkle to the branches with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Meadow Spark Glitter. Berries on the wreath are covered with Strawberry Coulis Nuvo Jewel Drops.
Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Cherry Embossing Powder. Some shading was added with Gray Promarker. Sentiment is also fussy cut.
Most fun and time consuming was the background. I stamped wreath all over the watercolor cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with White Detail Embossing Powder. Then I stamped word 'Noel' inside of each wreath in same way. For coloring I used Nuvo Aqua Flow pens from Spring Meadow set, Nuvo Glitter Markers from Northern Lights set and some Distress inks (Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Candied Apple). I wasn't able to catch it to the photo but the pine sprigs and berries are shimmering thanks to the Glitter Markers. I added a bit of Fuchsia marker to the berries before coloring them with Candied Apple Distress ink.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After adhering watercolored layer in center of it I covered rest of the tape with Dazzling Rose Glitter.
