Second Christmas card ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’ve whipped up a Christmas card to share with you and here it is …

A 150mm square card
Fabulous for posting
You can see some of the shimmer

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #450 No Patterned Paper
Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge January Anything Goes
Creatalicious Challenge #130 Anything Goes

I created some stencilled panels during the time after Christmas but before New Year and I have quite a few of them so this was a quick to put together card from a quick to create panel. The die cut greenery were left overs f rom the cards I created before Christmas. I quickly attached the stencil to the card and put some the blue black Pebeo Dyna paint on a tile. I have tried sponging with my ink blending tool, ‘painting’ and ‘stippling’ these paints but have found a damp make up sponge gives the best result. Once I had sponged the baubles and string I removed the stencil then cleaned it and waited for the blue black paint to dry before re-attaching and applying the blue green paint for the holly leaves at the top.

Once the paints were dry I glued the panel to my card. I added lashings of Cosmic Shimmer texture paste to the edges, the die cut greenery and the CWC Candi and there’s a second Christmas card done and I will share another next week, once it’s finished lol! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
