Post 285: Christmas Card (Let it Snow)

Hi Folks!

I'm sharing a Christmas Card today. This was made for a Guest Design post for stencils. All the details can be found here. For this card, I sponged on the Christmas tree design from the stencil using Emerald Green Archival Ink. I used archival Ink because I knew I was going to spray water over top of the design and archival inks are permanent once dry. Then I sprayed on 3 colors of Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays (Blingy Blonde, Drop Dead Gorgeous Green and Sassy Sapphire) and sprayed on some water to make them mix. Once this was dry it looked shimmery and green. Then I stamped the snowflakes and sentiment using the Uniko Stunning Snowflakes Stamp. In the end, I added sparkle with silver stickles by creating tiny dots and a hand drawn border around the foam mounted panel.

Here is a photo of the card:

 I am playing along with the following challenges:

  4. Hi Preeti, I love the way you've used your technique to make the tree stand out so beautifully. That pale yellow aura around it adds a bit of magic. Love the additional details you've added such as the embellishments and the silver border. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
