This is my first Christmas Card for this year - and it is part of an order.
I started by painting the background with Lindy's magical pigment powders in a green toned paint, then spraying it with some lemon Shimmer Spray
After that I stamped JOY (from a retired set of stamps) in Versamark ink, and rubbed gold perfect pearls powder over that - a very subtle effect, but I am loving it.
I then cut a Spellbinders Medallion 1 out of gold paper, and mounted it over some blue sparkle card cut to the same shape. The medallion was 'hung' with some gold edged red ribbon, and a bow added to the attachment point.
The customer wanted cards for her sisters, so I created the sentiment in my word processor and printed it onto vellum and gold embossed - I was happy with how they turned out. I tore the vellum and then layered it over the painted card.
I was placing the elements together when I saw some green punch waste trying to escape from it's draw, so I aided and abetted the escape and put it to use under the medallion. The painted layer was then placed on some gold, the same as the medallion was cut from, and then onto a red base.
