It's time for a new challenge at Merry Monday.
Don't forget that you'll have 2 weeks for this challenge.
You may have guessed what the challenge is.
Karren chose it and I was excited to see this.
I love this idea for candle holders!
My teammates have some wonderful inspiration for you
so be sure to go by and check them out.
I used my Penny Black Holly Berries die to cut the holly
then used the negative as a stencil.
The die cut was gently sponged with color and then touched
with a damp Aqua Painter to give it a watercolor look.
I snipped some dimensions in tiny pieces
and put them behind the leaves.
I love the look of movement but my camera sure didn't.
It took several tries to get a photo that didn't look too blurred.
and of course
don't forget to put some holly on a card and join us at
Thanks for stopping by.
