NR #4 Glad Tindings


Good Morning Paper Crafters.  I hope you have had a great weekend so far.  I had a wondeful Saturday.  I cleaned house, climbed up in the attic to get down all my fall decor and got most of it up, then spent the afternoon, night with my friend Deb.  We had so much fun playing around with mixed media techniques / images and created ATC's.   I will have to post all of your mixed media creations soon. 

Today I'm sharing another Christmas card using Layers of Color "Glad Tidings" art stamp set.  There is a little mini Copic tutorial at the end.  Don't laugh, teehee, there may be a beginner out there who may find it helpful.  I used glitter on the dove's as well as Stickles on the wreath.  Hard to see, but definitely a dramatic effect.

Have you started your Christmas cards yet??

This is beautiful, Melisa, with all the sparkle and shine! And those papers are gorgeous! I need to get all my Stateside cards done before I come in November but since I've been working all year on them should be no problem!
