This is "Merry"!

Wednesday past I taught a class and this is the card we made. To make it all easy we used the same colours and dies, changing out only the sentiment, which made it easier for everyone.

I picked the colours to use, after looking to this photo for the Inspiration Challenge come Saturday. 
These dies are older dies by Penny Black, but we all agreed we think they are all very pretty, so we used them.

To start I first die cut the background panel using a Penny Black die. I then blended on Salvaged Patina Oxide, and added in Rustic Wilderness until I was happy with the look.
Rather than spending a lot of time blending I spritzed the piece using Sunflower Perfect Pearls and water. This helps the inks blend together beautifully, and the effort is minimal.

I then put it aside and moved on the the branch, which I die cut using white card.Using my stylus set, I styled the die cut, which added a lot of movement to the branch. I then styled the pinecones.

I attached the panel to my card base using foam tape and attached the styled die cuts to the front of the card using Nuvo adhesive and foam squares.From glitter card I die cut the sentiment and glued it to the branch, and finished by attaching a few gems from Studio Katia.

We were all happy with our cards, and considered it a productive day, even though we spent the better part of the afternoon eating and messing around, along with making the cards.

  1. This card is just gorgeous in it's soft colour and simplicity yet elegance. Can I ask - what is Sunflower Perfect Pearls? I didn't see it in the supply list
