Holly Branch


Hi everyone.  This card is for the current challenge on my friend, Nonni's blog (Korttikarkuri) ... "Let's Get Inky - Stamp a Happy Christmas".  We would love to see more entries ... come and join in the fun!! :)

I stamped this beautiful holly branch in Staz-on Black ink and colored it with my inks and blender pen.  I added glitter glue on top for some sparkle (hard to see in the photo) ... and a tiny bit of detailing on the berries with my white gel pen.


Here's a close-up:





Stamps:  Watercolor Winter (SU!); Handy Christmas Greetings (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs)
Ink:  Black Staz-on, Gumball Green, Real Red (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig, blender pen, red glitter, green glitter, paint brush, white gel pen, Maraschino Twine (The Twinery), adhesives and dimensionals



Hope you'll join us!
