Joyful Greetings


Well, the big day is almost here.
I have been super busy as I'm sure most of you are as well.  

Meet today's card.  I picked up a few new stamps and wanted to play with them.
I began by masking my white cardstock and grabbed my MISTI.  I inked the red berries first by coloring on them using Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I then inked the evergreens the same way and stamped them randomly around the edges to blend in with the berries. I also added some white details to the berries using a white gel pen.
When that was dry, I stamped the sentiment from MFT and sponged the edges with Peeled Paint Distress ink.  Lastly, to add more depth and interest, I inked the script stamp from Penny Black with Grey Memento ink, stamped off onto a piece of scrap paper and then onto my card front. 
 I then removed the masks and mounted onto a piece of red cardstock.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Color Throwdown- ANY CHRISTMAS CREATION, ANY COLOR

Hope you are almost ready for the big day!
