CAS Christmas October Challenge


Hello there ~ I'm back to share a card I created for the October Challenge at CAS Christmas. I have lots of bird stamps and wanted to use my current favorites from PTI...


I started by stenciling clouds on the background then watercoloring and splattering the pine tree branches. Lastly, I added Glossy Accents to the berries and stamped and die cut the sentiment...and that was it :)

What sweet light blue birds, Barb! The shine of their eyes makes a big difference! The watercolored and splattered pine tree branches add interesting visual texture to the scene. And your very subtle clouds are fantastic! You did a fantastic job stenciling them!
