MCV - Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone!

Time for some card playing at MCV 73 where Robyn made a lovely card for our inspirations. How fun that she used stash/goodies from her crafting area and created a beauty. For my card I chose a water color background, flourish, Merry Christmas sentiment, similar colors. The background was created by using Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Emerald Lagoon, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers) stamped onto an acrylic block then spritzed with a translucent color shine and smooshed onto card stock. I love the shimmer created by the color shine. The flourish and sentiment were stamped using Versamark and Distress Inks (Faded Jeans and Emerald Lagoon) then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This adds more shimmer.  A few royal blue sequins were added for sparkle. I decided to mount the water color panel to a Midnight Blue panel for some pop.

Hope you're having a wonderful day!
