A Jolly holly Video and Tutorial

 Hello! Today I have another card to share with you, featuring my latest stamp set for Gina K Designs, called Dashing.

Here is the video I made to show you how I made the card and you can see step by step photos below.

Stamp the holly image, from the Dashing stamp set,  twice, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I only show one image, but you'll need two for the finished card. After stamping, begin coloring using Copic marker G28.

Add Copic marker G07.

Add G03.

Fill in with G000. Touch up the shading if desired with G28.

For the berries, start with Copic marker R89.

Add R27, leaving just a tiny bit uncolored, then fill that in with R00. For the stem, us E57.  After coloring, cut out the holly images.

Trim white cardstock to 4 ½ by 3 ¼ inches and sponge lightly around the edges with Gina K Ocean Mist ink.

Sponge very lightly over the Ocean Mist with Gina K Dark Sage ink. Optional : Sponge extremely lightly with Black Onyx over the Dark Sage. The sponge dauber should be essentially dry for this step to be certain to get a very light effect.

Stamp two of the snowflakes, also from Dashing, using Dark Sage. But be sure to stamp off onto scotch paper first to make the images lighter when stamped on your background. Repeat several times, randomly over the cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment onto the background using Black Onyx ink. Layer the background with a piece of Pure Luxury Black Onyx ink, trimmed slightly larger, then adhere both layers to a 5 ½ by 4 ¼ inch Moonlit Fog card base. Adhere both holly images using craft glue. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
