Hello everyone! So fun to get back into coloring this week! This month is the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I will link up on Instagram but I wanted to share my card here too.
Christmas and holly, two of my favorite things! The brown paper package this time is the brown paper Hero Arts die cut wood frame! I die cut it 3 times, glued them together to get the real ‘frame’ look. Then I inked it all with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.
I gold heat embossed the A2 size cardbase with one of the stamps from My Favorite Things Distressed Panels stamp set.
The Holly and Merry Christmas are from Ellen Hutson’s Mondo Holly stamp set. I gold embossed on Hot Press Watercolor paper and colored with Karin Brushmarkers. What awesome markers… full of ink and joy! lol I just put a little ink down and pull it out to color in with a waterbrush. Let it dry, then do it again. I didn’t keep track of how many times I came back and colored again! There’s just something about adding more color here and there. Yes, therapy! Here’s a post I made on IG back in March showing the markers I used for this card. It’s so cool to be able to actually see the ink in the marker barrel!
I added mounting tape cut to fit on the backside of the holly and the sentiment. The frame is glued directly to the cardbase.
It’s ready to head out the door one of these days. I tell you, I get attached to these cards sometimes and it’s hard to let them go but I must! I’ve been sorting cards this week. The spare bedroom is covered with cards. I’m making progress but it sure doesn’t look like it! I would type ‘lol’ but it’s not funny! I must do better at staying organized!
Here’s hoping you’ve had some creative days this week! There’s so much I want to make! I keep seeing more things I want to buy! It’s dangerous out there gals! lol As if you don’t already know. haha
oh dear, I’ll shut up…have a great weekend and I’ll catch up again with you soon! Thank you so much for stopping by!
A few links for what I used…pssstttt…great gift ideas for oneself! 😀
