Deck the halls

It's Daring Cardmaker day and we're getting further into the Christmas spirit - today's dare asks for a card inspired by Christmas carols and songs.

I immediately thought of this lovely big sentiment stamp with words from "Deck the halls with boughs of holly" so went with that and, of course, the holly to go with it!

Colouring is a mix of Copic and pencils. I used a scalpel to cut around the tips of a couple of the leaves so I could tuck the die cut circle in behind them. The berries have a bit of Wink of Stella glitz on them and white paint pen highlights.

Stamps:
Noel (Waltzingmouse Stamps - now available from Gina K)
Freebie holly stamp (Creative Stamping magazine)

Ink: Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Chocolate)

Paper: kraft

Other:
Copic markers
Coloured pencils
Stitched circle die (just a cheap and cheerful unbranded one)
Clear Wink of Stella marker
White Posca paint pen
Corner Chomper

Thanks for stopping by!
