A Child is Born
by Marybeth Lopez
Hi there ! Marybeth here today with an ink blended Christmas card from Poppystamps and using a Merry Christmas stencil from Memory box . The Stencil is called: Christmas Cursive Merry. I thought is was from last year but I was wrong sorry it's from 2014 #88578 You can make this card using any Christmas stencil you have .
I sprayed the back side of my stencil with : Pixie Spray I think I bought mine on Amazon but many places sell it. I started out ink blending with Candied Apple and wanted a deeper red.
I went over my stencil a second time using : Festive Berries
Then one last time did the trick using Ruby red. I love that you can add to the card base with any color. This stencil is very detailed and so easy to do with a blending brush as pictured above. Now the fun part......
Taking the stencil off! Without the spray to hold such a detailed stencil in place , it would be hard to have such a clean white image , I love how this turned out. I couldn't decide what color to frame my sentiment ( using the snow globe ) so the frame is cut 3 times and glued together. Then I added a bit of glue to add my two layer dove and olive branch .
My new and very favorite craft glue is : Art Glitter Adhesive.... It comes with a stainless tip and pin to keep the adhesive flowing freely and the tip is so fine . I love how precise this glue is. Many places sell that too , pretty sure I bought mine on amazon . No glitter in it it's just what it called. I will share a picture of it on my blog. Here
I used the Snowglobe ,Christmas Time Stamps and Dove and Olive Branch from Poppystamps the patterned paper around the frame is from memory box Dashing Stripes and Dots.
Thank you so much for the visit today. Hope I have inspired you in some small way and I hope you have a beautiful weekend.
