Merry Christmas


It's Anja here. I've been having a tons of activities at work and I was working late this last week. It's been such a great end of the week to come home and see all the new beautiful dies that finally came in the mail box. I've had some ideas to use them and today I'm presenting the first one.

For this project I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Poinsettia w/ Flourish, Merry Christmas Elegant Phrase),
- Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Twisted Citron, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass),
- white card base (21x10 cm),
- water color paper for background (20,5x9,5 cm),
- gold acrylic paint,
- water spritzer,
- heat gun,
- brush,
- baby wipes,
- paper glue.

First I made the background. I used Distress Inks and colored from light to darker colors. I blended in between.

Then I spritzed the paper with water, dried it and then sprinkled it with gold acrylic paint. I let it dry. I used baby wipes to put some color around the paper.

Then I colored the sentiment. Again I used gold acrylic paint and a brush. I dried it with the heat gun.

Then I cut and colored the flowers. I made two sets. I used Distress Inks and gold color.

And then I just glued everything together.

Have a nice Sunday.
