Be Merry, Be Merry, Be Merry

Hello once again. This is my card for the new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge:

The theme at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge is always anything goes as long as it’s a Christmas/festive theme.

For this card I used some Clearly Besotted stamp sets,, Copic colouring, and my Brother Scan-n-cut to cut them out. I played around quite a bit with the Scan-n-cut to try and get it to cut the middle of the wreath out – but I couldn’t figure it out, and I didn’t want to fussy-cut and ruin the wreath after I’d coloured it – so it stays as it is!

I added quite a bit of white gel pen to my image – one of those things you do and again I couldn’t seem to stop once I’d started – but I’m liking the over-all effect.

The background stars paper I think is from Stampin-Up – but not exactly sure, and the blue splattery piece is another from a my ink smooshing/splattering and generally playing around stash. I seem to be able to find a use for these at the moment, so I’m glad I played around one day.

The sentiment was stamped, and I coloured the back red panel with a Copic to get it to match the main image.

I hope you can join us, and I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
