Red, Green, and White for Merry Monday

Merry Monday is keeping it traditional this week.


Since I love the traditional Christmas colours, I had to enter!


I took my TH holly stencil and sponged over it with red, brown, and a couple of shades of green Distress inks.

Out of the darker shade of green (IRL the green of the frame matches perfectly but doesn't look that way in the photograph), I cut the Merry Christmas frame and trimmed down the holly panel to fit behind it.

I added red pearls to the red sponging to make it look more like clusters of berries.

Another for the Christmas stash!






Supplies:
Ink - various Distress inks
Paper - white and green cs
Size - A2
Accessories - SSS Holiday Frame, TH holly stencil, red pearls

Those pearls really do look like crisp berries, Susan! And I love the way your holly looks dappled, like the sun is shining through it!! Hugs, Darnell

beautiful card, I love that holly stencil paired with the SSS holiday die. Great use of the pearls they give just enough pop with the colours.
