I created my background with Crystal Effects and reinkers (Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride). Here’s what it looked like after the first layer.

For my next layer I used Wild Wasabi reinker with my Crystal Effects. I also added some glitter.

Hometown Christmas

I made a quick and easy Christmas card using the Hometown Christmas (6″x6″) Collection and the Hometown Christmas #2 stamp set from Ken Oliver Crafts. I added Color Burst to the sentiment for a little pop of color.

I trimmed my paper and a red mat.

I added a little glitter to the tree.

I used Color Burst (Terre Verte, Alizarin Crimson & Sepia) on watercolor paper and then stamped the sentiment with Lamp Black ink (the Click It pads work great with the MISTI). I trimmed the sentiment panel with scissors.
