Christmas Card #4

And finally #4, (check out the earlier blogs)…  The background was done with Stampin’ Up Bliss Blue, Ballet Blue and Brocade Blue inks.  I mixed crystal rainbow transparent glitter with Ranger Texture paste on the stencil.  The stencil is Hero Art’s Swirl Tree.  The ornaments are Viva Paper Pen in silver.  What will the final card be, check back and see!

Christmas Cards #1

I mentioned in an earlier blog how cards kind of evolve until I end up with the card I really like, an example was my Halloween card.  I am working on a Christmas card currently and I am making progress but I am not quite there yet.  So, here are some “trials” and you can wait and see what I finally come up with (let me know which one you like the best).  The first card has a background done with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries & Fired Brick.  The tree is the Swirl Tree stencil by Hero Arts and the ornaments are Viva Glass Effect Gel in carmine.  I used Ranger Texture Paste for the tree and added some crystal rainbow transparent glitter to it.  I like the background but I am not happy with the bleed through of the ink.  The ornaments kind of get lost too, but like I said, this is a trial…
