Christmas Blessings

Christmas is just around the corner, so today I have a holiday card to share with you using Graciellie's new "Merry Everything" digital stamp set.

This is my first attempt at no-line coloring with pencils/markers --- I'm thinking I should have started with something a little less complicated! 

To create my card I:
  • printed the main image on kraft card stock
  • colored the floral spray with Prismacolor Pencils and added highlights with Touchfive Markers and a Gold Gel Pen
  • fussy cut  the image and popped it up with mounting tape over a pink velvet background
  • matted my pink background on a piece of white card stock that I embossed along the edges in Gold Embossing powder
  • printed a sentiment from Merry Everything, die cut it with the Labels 10 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), and inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide (Ranger)
