I unapologetically love Christmas! Lucky for me Picket Fence Studios July Release features several new Christmas items. For the first two cards, I used the beautiful Brocade Stencil which is not really a Christmas stencil but paired with Christmas colors and a Christmas sentiment it's Christmasy! The sentiment is included in the wonderful Believe in the Magic set.
I don't have a lot of variety in my watercolor powder colors so I decided to change the look of my powders a bit by first brushing Distress Ink through the Brocade Stencil with my Life Changing Blender Brushes. (also sold in a discount Bundle) Next, I spritzed the paper with water and tapped on the watercolor powder. I love how the Distress ink changes the color just enough to give me a bit of variety. I wanted to cover up as little as possible of this interesting background so centered the sentiment from Believe in the Magic.
For my last card of the day, I departed from my favorite theme and created something lovely using A Rose. I created the background several months ago and then set it aside. This week it all came together with the help of an art prompt challenge on FB. The sentiment is found in More Fancy Sentiments and then I sprinkled a few yummy Margarita Sequins! And that's it. A quick yet beautiful card to let someone know they are being thought of.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration!
