Brusho Christmas Tree November 12, 2016

Happy Saturday!  Time for another Christmas card… I really like the way the tree pops on this card.


For this card, I stared out using Sea Green Brusho on some watercolor paper.  I cut out the tree using the Crafter’s Companion Die’sire Seasonal Tree die, and then I used some scrap red paper for the pot the tree is in.  The card base is Neenah Solar White, and the black background paper is my favorite textured black paper, Classic Linen Epic Black.  The sentiment is heat embossed using a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly set Rockin’ Around with Tsukeniko white embossing powder.

Just a quick card that I really enjoyed creating…


I was playing around with the Elizabeth Craft Designs peel off stickers and Richeson watercolor paper, and I colored them in as robins using Prismacolor colored pencils, blended with Gamsol.  Then, I watercolored the background with my Spectrum Aqua markers.  The background top and bottom edges are foiled using my Minc and some teal colored foil.  I wasn’t sure I like the harsh edge of the watercolor paper against the foil, so I added a strip of birds on a wire washi tape.

This will be entered in the following challenges:

Hope you are having a wonderful start to the weekend!  Here’s a bright, sunshine-y card for today.


For this card, I started out with some Light Yellow Basis 80# cardstock, and I embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The image is from the Unity Stamp Company’s Best Wishes & Blooms set, stamped on Richeson watercolor paper.  I colored it using the Spectrum Aqua markers.  The circles are cut using Framelits, and I mounted the watercolor paper onto some Emerald Green Classic Linen 80# cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Die-namics Happy Hellos set, and I cut it out of a toner sheet and foiled it with gold foil.
