CAS Christmas Challenge - March

I have a second entry for the CAS Christmas Challenge.  I forgot about my PTI Christmas Botanicals and made my card using the holly stamp.
I stamped the holly in Peeled Paint and colored it with PolyChromos pencils.  Using the MISTI I went back in and stamped again in VersaMark and embossed in gold.  The CF sentiment is also embossed in gold and both are on Altenew's Spicy Yogurt cs. I tried out a variety of card base colors and settled on this shimmer paper.  I must say the pencils took on a different texture and hue when I heat embossed and it looks a little less blotchy IRL.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your day is going well.

  1. Beautiful holly image Bobby! Great idea to no line colour with your pencils and then heat emboss the gold outline. Really pretty! Love the soft colour of your card base. Thanks again for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! xx
