Whimsy Stamps - Abstract Christmas
Hello there! I have a fun card to share with you today that I created using a stamp set called Abstract Christmas from the Whimsy Stamps September release! This stamp set is available now in the Whimsy Stamps store.
I am not one to distress edges or used blend inks around the edges of cards or tags, but recently I have been into Mixed Media a little bit and experimenting with some fun techniques, so I decided to try a little bit of that on this card. I first embossed the circle tree from the Abstract Christmas stamp set onto watercolor paper with white embossing powder. I then used Peerless watercolors to loosely watercolor it. I used several different shades of green. When it was dry I speckled with more of each of the different greens.
I cut the panel down a bit and distressed the edges with an Exacto knife, then loosely painted some of the same shades of green around the edges. I stamped the sentiments with black ink on white card stock, cut them out and added them with foam tape. The gold dots on the tree are Crystal Nuvo Pale Gold.
You can find the Abstract Christmas set HERE in the Whimsy Stamps Store!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
