Sweet Poppy Stencils "Snowberries" Card


Here's a simple Christmas card made using a couple of Sweet Poppy stamps and a stencil.

I stamped the Sweet Poppy Stencils "Snowberries" stamp, part of their "Botanicals" collection in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  I then coloured the image using Derwent Inktense pencils, using the colours:  Spring Green, Apple Green, Light Olive, Lanium Green and Storm Dust.  I added extra shading using a 2B pencil too.

I then used "Shadow Grey" Ranger Archival ink through the Sweet Poppy "Plaid Back Plate" stencil. Shading the colour out towards the left and the top of the card.

Finally, I added a stamped greeting, using one of the "Festive Phrases" sentiment, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink. I then added Ranger "Glossy Accents" to the berries and set aside to dry.
