I have another Christmas card. Christmas will be here before we know it!
The Jingle Belles Challenge nearly stumped me this time.
It's 12 Days of Christmas.
I thought of this Impression Obsession Dove Die and went with
Two Turtle Doves.
I had some snippets of textured pearlized cardstock in with the dies. That
worked for cutting the dies.
The background piece is one I started at the ESCR retreat. We glued
some torn pieces of book pages (gasp) on cardstock and covered with gesso.
Can't see those pages? Neither can I, but I know this started out that way.
I added some watercoloring. It was too dark. So I added some gesso.
Then I added some stamping. Too dark. x#%r. More gesso.
I'm going to try this again, Hopefully with more success!
The ribbon is a teeny strip cut with my Cutterpillar.
I love how I can get that little twist.
I'm also going to add this to
ANYTHING GOES: Must have stamping
adding too at ABC Christmas Challenge
S is for Sparkle, T is for Texture
I don't have sparkle, but lots of texture.
