Inspirational Friday with Mariëtte / L'inspiration du vendredi avec Mariëtte

Some christmas cards today

For this first card I inked up a round gellli plate with two colors of distsress oxide ink and brayered it out and made a print of it on my background.

A very quick and easy basic background and you can than build up the circle with stamps and stencils. 
I used white gold watercolor paint to color the some stripes of the ornament and added some splatters on the background. Unfortunately the picture does that catch that shimmer.

From the left over ink on the brayer and the gelli plate I used it for the second card. As it was to pale I placed the stencil on top of it and started to blend the distress oxide inks thru the stencil. Traced the outline of the poinsettias with a black fineliner. 

 But still the background was not wat I wanted to be, so start watercoloring the background around the poinsettias with the distress oxide inks. Added some white gold splatters for some shine and added the text on a white banner.
