I had signed up to be part of a Paper Wings group to encourage eachother to create Christmas cards every month so that we aren't scrambling at the last minute (like I ALWAYS do). Well, I'm totalling sucking swamp water on my goal of completing 9 per month. This is only my second one, and I'm not EVEN going to share the first one I did... ugh. I do believe I will be scrambling once again this year :)
Stamps: Bird Cage, Linear Sentiments, Just For You (hostess level A)
Other: Lyra Watercolor Crayons, water mister, misc. ribbon, Nestabilities, Pop Dots, and 1" Circle Punch
I achieved the watercolor look to the bird image by coloring directly on the rubber stamp with the Lyras, mist with water, stamp off lightly, and finally stamp final image. I love the soft look, and will definitely be doing more of these!
I created the scallop border by layering circle halves... quick and easy, and you can really get some big scallops working! Also, while the large white circle was still in the Nestabilities die, I sponged Reflection Blue & Iris inks VERY LIGHTLY so that there is a white border left around the edge of the circle.
What do you think?
