I would like to wish you all a happy Christmas, and a prosperous, healthy, and creative 2014 !
I was inspired by Jo Myhill's use of tissue paper on the Paperartsy blog. What would I create with this technique? It is nearly Christmas, so why not make a Christmas card? Actually, it is the only Christmas card I made this year...
I stamped some balls and holly from Paperartsy Noel plates 2 and 6 on a piece of tissue paper. Then I coloured the balls with Sky and Ice Blue. I coloured the holly with Toad Hall and London Bus, darkened with Little Black Dress. All this is done on the back of the tissue paper. When that was dry, I painted the back with Ice Blue mixed with Snow Flake to make a lighter shade.
I coloured a card with Sky, and stamped Mini MN39 using ColorBox MicaMagic Regal Red, to add some sparkle.
Using Satin Glaze I glued the tissue paper to the card.
The Happy New Year's wish is stamped with Archival Black. The sheet music is from Stampers Anonymous, stamped in Sepia. I coloured the background with Frayed Burlap and Scattered Straw Distress Inks. I distressed the border and coloured it with Vintage Photo.
