coral christmas ...

  • Lawn fawn dies- 'dotted rectangles stackables'
  • Tim holtz distress inks- 'cracked pistachio', 'abandoned coral' & 'peacock feathers' 
  • SU! Stamp sets- 'perpetual birthday calendar ' & 'flurry of wishes ' 
  • Paper artsy JOFY stamp- 'jm29'
  • Archival ink pad - 'tuxedo black'
  • Watercolour cardstock 
  • 6x4 card blank 
  • wink of stella glitter pen - 'clear'

I die-cut a panel of cardstock and inked it with an ombre effect. I stamped little snowflakes all over to complete the background, using 2nd generation towards the top portion for a softer colour. I stamped and die-cut my sentiment. I then stamped my image once onto the background and once onto some spare cardstock. I water-coloured the image using distress inks and fussy cut it out. I used a black brush marker on the cut edges to define them. I then added them onto the card using foam, making sure they lined up with the strings to look as though they were hanging. I added glitter to the flurry & Christmas words to complete.
