More Christmas Cards

Two more Christmas Cards today.  Trying to get enough so I can donate some to the Meals on Wheels organization.  The first one I stamped the sentiment and embossed in white.  Then I stamped foliage from Catherine Pooler Designs Merry and Bright Boughs stamp set and Hip Holidays and Candy Cane Lane.  I watercolored with some inexpensive metallic watercolors.  I wanted a little more gold so the second I embossed the foliage in gold as well as the sentiment.  I painted the leaves and berries.  On this one, I messed up.  Flecks of gold emboss in the wrong place and white ink where it shouldn’t be.  So I decided to flick some of the gold water color with a brush,  That wasn’t enough so I sprayed with Hero Arts gold shimmer spray.  I actually liked it in the end.  Again without over thinking, I just did whatever and it is amazing what you end up with.

This was the messed up one.  The picture doesn’t do it justice.

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
