Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gĂąterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine her finishing off my last Christmas cards 😅.
I heat embossed one of the new Christmas Foliage stamps in Gold embossing powder on Kraft Mixed Media card. I used Finetec  shimmery watercolors (the blue/green palate) to painted the leaves and red Finetec for the berries. Mixed media card will take the watercolor a little better than regular card. I masked the stamping and stenciled the ornaments on the background and used the Christmas song stamp in Delicata gold over the whole card with the mask still in place. The Delicata gold is very subtle and just adds a little sparkle to the card.


You can see the sparkle from the Delicata gold ink on this photo.

Wow. This is beautiful, Christine. I love that subtle background stenciling and the Finetec colors shimmer. Blue and green is a favorite combination of mine and this Christmas Foliage image is so pretty done in those colors.
