Ink Smooshed and Watercolored Peace Love & Doves Background with Michelle

CatherineChristmas, CP Designs, CPD Ink, Watercolor

Hello! Michelle Lupton here with you today to share a card I made using the new “All the Trimmings” release and non-traditional Christmas colours.

I started with a piece of watercolour cardstock, and stamped the “Peace, Love and Doves” background stamp and embossed with silver embossing powder. This background stamp is so lovely, I can see that I will be getting a lot of use from it this Christmas time!  I smooshed Suede Shoes, Mardi Gras, Aquatini and Mint to Be inks onto my craft mat, added some water and used them as watercolours to create an ombre effect over the embossed image.

I then used the two smallest Nested Labels dies to create a window in the panel, but I discarded the piece that formed the border between the dies. I stamped and white embossed “Peace” from the Seasonal Sentiments and Borders stamp set onto a piece of vellum, and then layered the pieces so that the vellum is sandwiched between the background and the smallest label. I mounted it all onto a side folding white card base.

Thanks so much for visiting – I hope you have as much fun using this new release as I have!
