Hello everyone hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.
I've been having a play with the holly leaf from the Big Christmas collection. I started by stamping the leaves in a circular design very organically with black archival ink. I then painted the whole image using neocolors II water soluble wax crayons. I built the colours up gradually until I was happy with the depth. I've added some gold acrylic and glitter to the leaves. To finish off I added some red star gems in between the outer leaves.
The center of the card is made up of 5 leaves which have been stamped, coloured and cut out and then mounted using foam pads to give some depth.
The berries are made from a selection of seed beads in a mix of red and gold - these were threaded onto some thin wire and just randomly twisted until they resembled a cluster of berries.
I've mounted this onto a cream A6 card to which I've stamped the leaves using the Spring Green and Dusky Rose pigment ink pads - I added the dusky rose to the center of the leaf and then the spring green to the edges to get a two tone effect.
Until next time keep crafting.
