Samantha here, and today I have a fun twist on a Christmas card! :)
First, I used the Tumbled Glass distress stain and the incredible Swirly Stencil to create my wavy, beachy, tropical-ly background! :) Then a strip of gold glitter tape made the sand! I stamped the trees from Comfy and the Snowman from Cool Buddies, then colored them in with copics! I created the sentiment by combining phrases from Cool Buddies and Smiling Snowflakes onto colored vellum, punched circles! :)
When I color vellum, I typically use a blending tool and some Distress Inks! It gives a very soft and unstreaky effect. I also usually color the vellum on the back side of the piece...otherwise inky fingerprints magically appear on my project...face...desk. Ha!
Thanks for stopping by!
