the current jingle belles’ prompt is a sketch by stephanie; i had so many ideas of ways to use it, but i only had time for this one for now. one idea was to make a one layer card, but i had to trim off a flaw so i ended up matting it to make an A2 card. i painted twinkling H2O watercolour washes, embossed with a leane creatief embossing folder that i love and sanded it to reveal the w/c paper. i added the impression obsession peace sentiment die cut from black mirri paper that i found easier to attach using my xyron sticker machine than a glue pen. the tiny dots are also cut with the mirri. one more christmas card for my stash.
i’d like to also submit it to these challenges:
