Warm and Cozy Christmas
I watercolored my image with ink pads and an Aqua Painter. Then I masked the image and sponged the grass using an oval stencil and also sponges a soft sky leaving my border white by
keeping the paper inside the Nestabilites Die while I sponged on the color. I stamped and watercolored the hat then added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and cut it out and mounted it with foam mounting tape. Then I added snowflakes using white Liquid Applique.and some glitter for extra sparkle. I mounted this on a scalloped rectangle of Ridinghood Red Card Stock and layered it onto Kiwi Kiss cs with foam mounting tape.
My card base is Ridinghood Red layered with Always Artichoke and designer paper by Basic Gray. I colored the Sentiment from the set with Ruby Red and Always Artichoke markers. I layered this to Artichoke cs and added a punched out snowflake (the reverse side of the DP) that I embossed with Iridscent Ice EP and layered with a smaller white snowflake and a tiny red brad. I added 3 larger red brads (Queen and Co.) to the side along with punched circles of Artichoke card stock. This was raised with the foam mounting tape.
After I had the card completed I realized that I should have cut my sentiment a tad shorter to match the sketch more closely but once you stick that foam mounting tape down it's not coming off without ripping the paper so it's staying put.
I hope you like this card as much as I did making it.
