Rebecca Sinz - Holly

Here is a Christmas card I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Rebecca Sinz called "Holly".  She is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image plate (Sheet 12, Plate 236 - Holly comes on the multi-image plate with Hemlock, Witching Hour and Dragon Angel.

I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  The backing papers I was given.  Due to the expense of posting cards I am trying to keep the height of cards to a minimum so it doesn't cost people a lot to post.  I have therefore embellished with some washi tape, gems,  Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and made a flower out of tissue paper with a brad centre and red Stickles rubbed over it (messy but very effective).  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Oh Kym, what an absolutely gorgeous card - the colouring of your image is is so pretty and very natural. Wow, your tissue paper flower rubbed over with Stickles is so striking. Messy to achieve, but so worth the final effect. Postage rates are both exorbitant and confusing so I so appreciate your ability to create cards that are reasonable to post. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
