Christmas card

I love playing with my Spectrum Noir markers. I can colour and get beautiful shading or I can make a background with them. In this card I did both.

I used the Gina K Designs digital image, printed it on Bazzill Basics Simply Smooth white cardstock and coloured it with TB1, TB3, TB4, TB5 and IG2. I used Stickles Star Dust on the gray part of the ornament to make it look like silver and sparkle.

I scribbled on my craft mat with TB9, TB6 and TB3 and spritzed with alcohol until the colours blended a bit. I used a piece of photo paper and placed it on the mat to pick up the colour.

I cut 2 scalloped ovals out of regular white cardstock and coloured the edges with TB5 and IG2. I used more Stickles on the outside of the gray oval. I trimmed the 'Joy' to fit inside the blue oval. 

When everything was dry I adhered it all together onto a white card base and added a small silver bow.

I am entering this in the following challenges:


  1. This is gorgeous! A wonderful coloring and background of that lovely image. It certainly makes a beautiful Christmas card.
