Hi friends! We are almost halfway into January, and I finally finished my post-Christmas Thank you cards. The last card went out into the mail today, but not before I took a couple pictures to share with you today.
I started with stamping a Winter Sketches branch. I used Gathered Twigs, Evergreen, Sapphire, and Stargazer Pinkfresh Studio inks as my colors. Then I pulled out my Copic Markers to really enhance the branch. I added a dark shadow to with limb with E79, contrasting greens to the needles and leaves with G29 and YG05, and shaded the blue berries with B26 and B28. I die-cut the branch with the coordinating die, and finished by adding Ranger Distress Rock Candy Glitter, using Multi Media Matte as my adhesive. I set the branch aside to dry, and set up my MISTI to stamp two matching blue robins from the Robin and Wren stamp set.
I stamped the birds with Slumber, Sapphire, and Stargazer PF inks, and Antique Linen and Weathered Wood Distress Oxide inks for their bellies. Gathered Twigs PF ink was used for beaks and feet. I used the coordinating dies to die-cut them.
I made a quick watercolored background, using Mijello watercolors. I let the panel dry, then splattered watered-down acrylic paint and shimmer water all over the panel. I die-cut the panel with the middle rectangle from Nordic Frame Dies, and attached it to Blueberry card stock, die-cut with the large Nordic Frame Die. I mounted the panel onto a white card base, and attached the branch and birds with foam squares. I finished the card with a Sentiment Suite: Thank you Sentiment in the upper corner.
I had so much fun putting this card together. Every time I play with The Greetery products, I fall in love with them all over again.
You can find amazing inspiration over on The Greetery Blog. That’s all that I have for today! Thanks so much for stopping by.
