Saltwater Berries

Hello there everyone!

Life got pretty busy towards the end of this year and I totally missed all the last posting deadlines. I saw all the mountains of mail outside the Royal Mail sorting office and decided that there was no way that any of my cards would make it through before mid January! And who wants to receive a Christmas card then? So instead I will be sending winter cards out in January! And so begins an epic winter cardmaking project!!

I’m also going to use this project to get to grips with my new lighting tent. I realised that I was spending far to long photographing my cards so I have invested in a small lighting tent and used it for the first time today. It seemed easier than my old set up and I’m looking forward to practicing with it over the next few months!

Anyway, for today’s CAS winter card, I used products kindly sent to me by Penny Black. I pulled out the beautiful Berry Bouquet brushstroke cling stamp (40-860) and some Arteza markers and distress inks. I was originally going to colour the berries different shades of red, but I liked my base colour (Saltwater Taffy) and abandoned the other colours! I did add some Stickles to random berries though!

I grounded the image by lightly sponging some Antique Linen behind the image and added a few aqua paint splatters. Finally I stamped a sentiment from the When Snow Falls set (30-881).

Thanks for stopping by!
