MC Nov/14 - Merry Xmas Tree - Textured Words & A Smile is the Best cards
and here are the 2 smaller versions of the card I posted yesterday... I mentioned yesterday that I came across a calligraphic xmas tree that I really liked and decided to try to create it... I used a 1.5mm parallel pen and Sumi ink - I would have used a large pen nib... but my other pens seemed to be dried up, so just grabbed whichever worked... I guess I should do a bit of cleaning and filling up. sigh!!
Both cards are 4.2"w x 5.5"h side folded white cardsotck.
On the blue one I added faux stitching using a Sharpie pen. Added balls with a Pilot G-Tec red pen and dots with a Sharpie. Then added some small rhinestones. Layered it on to a dark blue cardstock then to my white card.
On the inside stamped the wreath (Stubby Stampers) using Distress Mini pads, misting with water. Stamped the "Textured Holiday Words" (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Black Onyx.
On the green card, used Prisma colored pencils to add some color in the corners. Sponged the edges with a dirty green sponge, layered it to a Bazzill monochroamtic green textured cardstock, then to my main card. Added gel stickers as ornaments and tied a small narrow ribbon bow.
On the inside stamped the pinecone branch (Stubby Stampers) with Distress, misting with water. The quote (Quietfire Design "A Smile is the Best") with the black.
