Autumn here to share some holiday inspiration with you. I just could not wait to ink up the lovely new Mother and Child stamp. I decided to do a non-traditional color scheme so I could play with my beautiful new IndigoBlu metallic paints.
I used a pine bough die with very thin chipboard. I lightly mixed a small amount of Goldfinger and Snow White metallic paints together to form the most luxurious color and painted several of the die cuts. Next I cut my snowflakes and star and painted them with pure Goldfinger for contrast.
On a watercolor panel I partially stamped the Christmas Word Block and Snowflake Lace repeatedly with Versamark ink. I poured silver embossing powder over some sections, then shook off the excess. Then I poured gold embossing powder over the entire panel to collect in any open areas of my inked background and heat embossed. I distressed the edges of my panel. Then I embossed Mary in silver and fussy cut the edges.
I layered my elements, adding in some vintage seam binding, sequins, and splashes of watery Goldfinger and Snow White paints for interest. I mounted onto a pewter card base to create a pretty framed edge.
This card is both mixed media and CAS, if there is such a thing! I hope it inspires you to start your Christmas cards, especially if you're not quite in the mood for red and green just yet.
Thank you for your visit today and I look forward to reading your comments.
