Warm Wishes and Winter Foliage

>> Wednesday, January 24, 2018

With all the cold weather around the world right now, I wanted to do a card full of warm wishes.

I made the background by rubbing SU! ink on some aluminum foil and then splattering some white acrylic paint and water on it.  I soaked up the ink and paint with my paper and dried it.  I did the same with some Tim Holtz distress ink in vintage photo.  I used the brown to die cut my branches wth the Tim Holtz Branch die and then I hand-cut some leaves.  I added more textute to the leaves with a stylus and then added some Stickles sprinkled with glittery clear embossing powder.  I did the same to the berries on the branches.  I heated it all up and it bubbled up and made some great texture.  Then I stamped the DRS Designs Warm Wishes Greeting and cut it out like a banner.  I finished it all off with a splattering of diluted Snowtex. 

Hope you are staying warm!
