I'm so excited to be participating in Taheerah's Advent Calandar Extravaganza!! It is such a festive event with so many amazing inspirational projects, I'm so honored to be apart of it!! For today's card, I had a lot of fun the lovely Peace on Earth Stamp set and my colored pencils! img_2670 First, I mounted a sentiment from the Peace on Earth Stamp Set on my MISTI. I then masked the bird and swirly portions with cut pieces of a post-it note. Now that only the sentiment remained exposed I inked it up with my embossing ink, then removed the masks and stamped it in the center of an A7 card base made from black card stock. Next, I pouring white embossing powder over my sentiment and then heat set it. img_2671 Now that my sentiment was complete I repeatedly stamped the foliage and the berries in green and red pigment ink to create a ring or wreath around the sentiment. Once my wreath was completed I colored in all the foliage and berries with my Prismacolor colored pencils. After I had colored my wreath with my greens and reds, I highlighted portions of the wreath with my white colored pencil. I hope you enjoyed!! :) ~Channin I just love how Channin's coloring and the black cardstock make the images just pop off the paper, so vivid!
