Another CAS card, this time I'm fast forwarding to the festive season with a Christmas card.
I used the Sweet Poppy "Aperture Circle Stencil" with "Library Green" Ranger Archival Ink to create the shaded partial circle.
I used Versafine Clair "Rain Forest" dark green ink to stamp the Sweet Poppy "Botanicals Holly Sprigs" stamp. I coloured the leaves using three shades of Derwent Inktense pencils, applied with a brush. I added "A Wink of Stella" to the leaves to give a beautiful subtle gold shimmer to them.
A red Posca Pen was ideal for colouring the berries. I added white highlights with a gel pen to the leaves and the berries.
Next, I stamped the sentiment, which is part of the Sweet Poppy "Festive Phrases" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Tulip Red" ink.
Finally, I added splatters of white paint using a fan shaped paint brush to replicate snow flakes.
