Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Coloring Holly ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is another for Christmas  ( talk about stating the obvious ....) but the focal point is the subject of a video tutorial.

I was asked  if I would  show how to color in Holly especially with Christmas being well on it's way.

The Spectrum Noir colors used are ...
 DG2, DR4, DR6, IG7+Blender,  DG2, DG4, TN3, EB3, EB5

For this card I have colored and cut out the second image and decoupaged it onto the card.

The stripes in the ribbon are created with the blender pen.

The image is from the CD "The Next Big Thing" from Just Inklined ... but sadly it is no longer available ...unless you can find a  copy on Ebay.

So here it is and it will show you how to get the look that I have created here.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial and there are more on the way .... just as soon as my "Film Crew" has watched the Formula 1 ....

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
