I have another Christmas card to link to Wendy Vecchi's September Make Art Challenge.
For this card I used Wendy's Basically Brick Stencil with Orange Blossom Ink. I didn't ink it completely leaving some open spaces. I stamped and stenciled the wreath from the SISI For the Holidays set and the sentiment from Holiday Art. I stamped the bow on a piece of the background I created earlier using WV Archival Re-inkers and Rubbing Alcohol (see this post) , cut it out and layered it over the wreath with foam dots. I added some red rhinestones and an Idea-ology Gum Drop that I colored with Butterscotch Alcohol Ink.
You can find out how I made the background (before inking the brick stencil) on my first Make Art for Christmas post here.
I was totally inspired by Wendy's card below from her new brochure
While I had all my WV supplies out - I also created a thank you card, using yet another piece of the inked background I had made.
I stenciled the trees from the SISI Holiday Icons set. I stamped parts of the panel with Script and Ornate Dots background stamps. The lacey stamp across the top is from A Passion for Art,
the sentiment is from All Occasion Art. The hearts are die cut from Thinlit Shape Strips and I embossed them with WV Geranium Red Embossing Powder.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
