After playing with this die cut Christmas for about a week, here is the end result. I ended up braving on and handwriting the word Merry after considering all my stamping options this idea seem to fit best and I think it works. What do you think? I hand wrote it with a calligraphy pointed pen by pressing the ranger distress ink pad onto my craft sheet surface and then with a wet brush I applied it to my calligraphy pointed pen right onto the nib, I put on my brave hat on and went on writing, thankfully it turned out okay. Yeepi! I did practice on a scrap piece of paper first and to make sure the shade of blue was going to be right.
It is my first time working with Tim Holtz distress water color paper and I love it, it was a dream to ink blend, the ink doesn't absorbed to quickly, which gives you more time to more the ink around and not get sponge edge marks, love it!
I used a Simon Says Stamp falling snow stencil to apply embossing paste onto the front panel after having done the ink blending part. The Christmas die is part of a Christmas Blessings Die also from Simom Says stamp. I die cut Christmas a few times and then glued those cuts together to give it a little thickness, I then did a little ink blending to the bottom of the die and also applied some wink of stella for a little Christmas shimmer : )
Thanks so much for stopping by.
