FS458 - Merry Christmas



Congratulations to this week's Featured StamperJo Nevill aka Rambling Boots. The card I chose to CASE is here.



I focused on
-watercoloured quadrants
-round white sentiment die cut
-centre image
-sequins

I changed
-theme (birthday to Christmas)
-centre image (cupcake to snowflake)

I started by watercolouring with Kuretake Gansai Tambi on Bristol Smooth cardstock. While it dried, I cut a Christmas Token out of white cardstock and laid it onto a black circle. I then cut the die again from the watercoloured panel and inlaid all the bits into it. I put the whole thing on a white card base and added some multi-coloured sequins.

Of course this process left me with a colourful die cut that just could not go to waste, so I made a second card:

  7. Another stunning card. And it's cards like these which are inspiring me to go a bit inkier and artier. You perfectly execute how to add lots of colour and then clean the whole thing up :) I adore seeing cards which have a rainbow of colour. P xx
