I am excited to be able to share my first project as a DT member at Crafts Galore Encore. This month the prize is being sponsored by Limited Runs – which is a new-to-me digital art studio. I got to work with the image Christmas Carolers from the Christmas seasonal section. The idea for this card was right there when I saw this image.
I printed the image out onto my usual favorite coloring paper, namely Strathmore Paint Pad paper and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I created the background with Crayola Watercolor paints on Master’s Touch Watercolor paper, painting the colors on with free abandon. I cut the background to 3.5×4.75 inches and glued it onto a white cardbase.
I fussy cut the colored carolers and popped them up in the corner of my card with foam tape. I wanted them to be a focal point, despite them being in the corner.
I die cut the nativity scene from vellum and liberally applied glue to the back so that it would reactivate the watercolor under the vellum and so transfer some of my paint onto the scene as I wanted it to be a background element on this card. I stamped the word peace and the star with Versmark ink and white heat embossed them. I completed the card with a few added stars that I drew in with my gel pen. I love how this card turned out.
