Holiday Card and New Technique


I had a bit of time this morning before meeting my daughter for sushi, so I created a holiday card. This is not an original, as I saw this design on one of the blogs I frequent. I loved the look and wanted to create something similar. I used removable 1 inch masking tape to mask off a large square. I then used Tim Holtz distress ink in Peeled Paint and shaded in the square, with a bit more color on the edges. Using the same peeled paint, I took a SU tree stamp and inked off once and then stamped light images in the background. Then I removed all the tape leaving the colored box. I inked up the tree stamp again and stamped the single tree image. I just received a supply of hug snug seam binding, so I used the peeled paint color to ink the seam binding and then spritzed it with water and scrunched it. After drying for about 10 minutes I then just tied a double bow and attached to card, along with the holiday sentiment.
