Do you like making Holiday Cards with non traditional colors and supplies? I enjoy doing it and I do it every year, I love playing that way! :)

I like Iris card stock for some reasons because it is smooth, gives good results with the ink blending also gives a whimsical look when water or water colors were applied. When you stamp an image it does take a few seconds to dry but I think that is not a problem at all! Overall the finished card looks fantastic!! So I started by trimming down the Iris card stock to a standard sized side folding card, took another panel smaller than the main card base.

Over the smaller panel I ink blended the background with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. After that I added splashes of water and blotted the excess water with a tissue paper. Once that's done I placed Bubble Stencil from TimHoltz's Stampers Anonymous, applied Picket Fence Dauber Ink through it.

Next, I die-cut one of the Meadow Leaves through the Big Shot Express Machine and water colored it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

I free hand cut the hill with a pair of scissors and adhered the hill top over the smaller panel with foam tape followed by the leaves/trees with Tombow Glue.

Finally stamped the sentiment 'Happy Holidays' in London Fog ink by Memento

Also adhered the smaller panel over the main card base with foam tape. And that finished my card for today. Thank you for visiting. :)
