Just a quick post today to show a Christmas card I created, inspired by a number of challenges. I was inspired by the Winter Flowers and Foliage theme over at Daring Cardmakers, Christmas Florals and/or Greenery over at CAS Watercolour, flowers over at Jingle Belles, the colours over at Inspire Create and the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch.
I stamped the (now discontinued) STAMPlorations Peace Love Joy Christmas floral, heat embossed it in copper and watercoloured the florals in Distress Ink (Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany and Pine Needles). I then stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations Holiday Sketches: Christmas candles and heat embossed in copper. Last, I splattered some inks and copper Gansai Tambi watercolour on the card.
