Tearing through my Christmas cards.....
I've made a quick card tonight to add to my Christmas card stash combining the sketch above with this weeks challenge at CASual Fridays which is to use tearing:
I tore a piece of silver paper (which is actually a leftover party hat from last year's Christmas crackers which I I kept as I love the texture) and then tore a piece of patterned vellum to lay over it. (the image below shows the texture and detail better). I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts Very Merry Christmas onto the vellum and embossed it with red EP. The flowers is from the Waltzingmouse Pointsettia set stamped and embossed in white onto colouring cardstock and then speed water colour painted with 3 shades of red luminarte paints (my current favourite technique which is very handy when you need to colour lots of images quickly - like for Christmas cards). It has lots of great shimmer IRL but I can't get it to show in the photos. I simply finished it with 3 tiny maroon pearls.
