Time to add to your stash of Christmas cards! Marsha is hosting our All About Christmas challenge this week.
In every catalogue, there is a stamp set that really appeals to me, but for some reason I put off getting it. Then, when the catalogue is just about to retire, I finally decide to get it.
Good Tidings was that set for me in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. it is a two-step holly design with a watercolour look to it. Even though I really liked it, once I got it, I didn't use it. Silly, I know! So, it was time to ink it up for this challenge.
I only used two colours for the holly: Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. The images for the bottom layer were stamped off, then I used the detail layers full strength. The sentiment is done with Always Artichoke.
These images have a nostalgic feel to them, I think. I didn't want to use Whisper White - thought it would be too bright. So I stamped the images on Very Vanilla for a softer look. It also gives a warmer tone to the colours.
The DSP is from Delightful Daisy, and the card base is Cherry Cobbler.
For a little bit of sparkle, I used some of the Glitter Epoxy Shapes, from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, on the berries. Here's a close-up look at those:
