Festive Berries

 Morning.
Meet today's card.
 Not very traditional but I think still looks Christmasy.

 Playing with my Penny Black stamps today.  
I began by masking off the edges of my card front with Painter's Tape then using my MISTI, I stamped the Berry Merry Christmas image that I coloured using my Memento markers.  I always start by colouring the lightest shade onto my stamp, spray with water, stamp and repeat that process using darker shades of colour. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Cheer set with Memento black then went back in and watercolored the background using Broken China Distress Stain.
To add more interest, I added a bit of stenciling using drywall tape and splattered with white acrylic paint to give a snowy effect.
