splatters and blues and glitter, oh my!



So happy I got to join the Make it Monday fun at Papertrey. Danielle F. is splattering this week and I can't miss that. I missed the November blog hop, but its colors were my inspiration for this card along with the inspiration photo from Fusion.

And since I'm in the glitter mode, had to incorporate some glitter CS and even glitter glue splatters!


On white CS I stamped a wreath around a traced circle using Waltzingmouse Around Christmastime. Then I added the berries in various shades of blue pigment ink and gave them a little shot of clear embossing powder.

I used pigment inks with the exception of the darkest green - Adirondack Bottle. I used this, watered down, to make my splatters all over the panel.

Die cut my sentiment from glitter CS, stacked it and adhered. Stamped my secondary sentiment from Papertrey Take Three: Fall. Adhered the panel to a cardbase with foam adhesive and voila!

I'm joining these challenges:
Fusion - Blue Christmas


Christmas Card Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting. Have a great week!
