Merry Making – Wrap Up Day Coloured Cards

I love that Online Card Classes always include more techniques on their wrap up days and this class was no different! I will be trying them all at some point and will hopefully update this post when I do so.

In the meantime, I chose to start with Kelly Latevola’s card where she combined distress oxide inks with coloured pencils! Parts of this card were totally outside my comfort zone (loose water colouring, anyone?) but I totally loved making this!

I used the gorgeous W Plus 9 Christmas Rose stamp and a selection of my favourite distress oxide colours. It was fun to watercolour with them. I loved the effect created after the distress oxide was down, and was quite nervous about the coloured pencils, but I like the effect – more practice needed again, of course, but still great fun!

I finished off the card with some splatters of gold perfect pearls and sentiments from Simon Says Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!
