Christmas Wishes


Today, I am playing along with the Colour Challenge at Splitcoast.  Here are the colours we were to use on our card...great for Christmas cards!


I began by masking off an area on my card front with scrap paper.  I inked up the background stamp from Darkroom Door with Memento Grey ink and stamped.  
Next, I got out my MISTI and stamped the tree branches using Distress ink.  
For some hints of red, I dipped the end of my paint brush into some red acrylic paint and dotted the branches to mimic the look of berries.  The sentiment from Penny Black was stamped in black Memento ink.  After removing the mask, I scored a border around the stamped area with my ScorPal for interest.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Oh, Karen, I saw this on SCS and commented on it, but it is gorgeous! I love the beautiful rectangle with the branch and sentiment on the background and especially love the scoring! Stunning with the simple dark green mat! Hugs, my friend!

I have a couple of pine branch stamps but I love this cedar-y looking one, Karen, and the way you've stamped it.
