Hello friends ~ Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the May CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Christine is hosting this month and she has chosen ‘Foliage & Berries’ for our prompt.
I wanted to use non-traditional Christmas colors for this card so I chose stone gray cardstock for the holly and stems and hot pink for the berries...I know they look red on screen, but I used Copic Marker - RV17 and it's truly hot pink :) I blended the background with Tumbled Glass DOX fading into white and splattered Gouache for a snowy effect. I also spritzed the holly and berries with Sheer Shimmer Spray for a little sparkle. The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts stamp set just because I love the elegant font. And, that was it ~
My teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire everyone ~ Come on over to the Challenge Blog to check them out, and play along with us if you like! You have until the 24th to submit your card! I hope to see you there ~
