Penny Black - Berry Bouquet

Hi everyone.  Sharing another wonderful stamp (Berry Bouquet 40-860), from the Penny Black Christmas release.

I love this sweet vase filled with berry branches.  I kept the design very CAS by inking up the whole image with Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  More distress ink was added to the vase portion ... this time Gathered Twigs, before spritzing with a light mist of water and stamping onto my mixed media card front.  A wet paint brush was used to move some of the colour around on the vase.  I then inked up the berries with a marker (Stampin' Up's! Real Red marker).  I spritzed lightly again with water and stamped onto my mixed media card front; then left it to dry naturally.  The red mixed with the brushed corduroy ink to create lovely, deep coloured berries.  The sentiment (Jolly Snippets 30-925) is stamped in the same SU! real red ink.  To finish, I used my white acrylic pen to add dots to the berries.

I'm sending this over to the Merry Little Christmas Challenge #47 - Anything Christmas Goes ...
