A Christmas Card Favorite

As always I made lots of holiday cards this year and this is one of my favorites.

Distress ink colors: fired brick, broken china, peacock feathers, and pine needles and as needed fern green archival as well as Memories unicorn white pigment ink.

The poinsettia is stamped in archival fern green ink and water colored on Strathmore paper. The center is accented with opal liquid pearls and overall with Wink of Stella.

Dies: Tim Holtz- mixed media die set ( lattice piece) and Tim’s winter greens die set (evergreen branch). The small package tag is from a retired SU die set.  I colored it with a round blending tool to achieve the background color as well as darker color on the word “Merry”. Tim’s faded dot stencil was added over top.   A bokeh technique was used for the background.  Mercury Glass stickles around the evergreen.

Happy holidays!...Jan
