Hi Everyone, It's Julie here today. Thank you so much to everyone for their kind comments and 'likes' on our Facebook page with my Mixed Media Tutorial last week, I really appreciated it. I have made a Christmas card this week to share with you all. Let me take you through the steps of making this card.
I first of all stamped my image in black onto Kraft card and heat embossed with clear ink. Shading my image with Copics and adding Stickles to the berries.
I next paper pieced my large Snowflakes and Pine Branches to the reverse of my card layers to form frames.
You will have noticed on the green foliage I also cut out the top of the branch and layered on to form a corner point.
My Poinsettia's were made by colouring strips of white paper with Distress Spray Stains. I used Aged Mahogany, Festive Berries and Brushed Pewter and dried with my heat gun before adding a touch of gold mica spray. I then die cut out my Poinsettia Strip.
You get beautiful different shades on your flowers which gives a realistic look. I added some stamens and built them up.
I paper pieced my Holly and my Pine Branches onto my card, checking my Poinsettia would hide the joins before I finally glued on top. finally adding Stickles around the Perimeter.
