Hello there, due to postal delays, I am a little late to the party with this card so I apologise for that but did you see the fabulous Make Merry release from Simon Says Stamp? They kindly sent me the new Bold Merry Christmas Stencil to play with and I had a lot of fun creating this card (and I am sure will make many more with it too!).
I started off by spraying the back of the Simon Says Stamp Bold Merry Christmas Stencil with Pixie Spray. I let it dry off for a minute and then placed it sticky side down on to a 5.5" x 4.25" panel of white cardstock. Using blending brushes, I then blended on Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks randomly across the panel.
I used Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Unexpected for Christmas but I think they are so pretty together! I then placed the panel in the MISTI and stamped the Simon Says Stamp Lots of Snowflakes set on top. I placed the snowflakes randomly over the panel and stamped them using the same Oxide Inks for a tone-on-tone look.
With the stencil still in place, I splattered on a little solution of Perfect Pearls and water and then removed the stencil. The panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base and then I finished off with a few Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequins, along with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins (so that I had a random mix of sizes) that were adhered using Multi Medium Matte glue.
