Non-Traditional Winter Greetings Holiday Card, Copics, Distress Inks


Hello friends! Meg here, with a non-traditional colored holiday card!

I started this card by distress ink-blending the background. I used Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean distress inks and a Ranger ink blending tool. I added to the background some Moonstone (clear) glimmer texture paste by Nuvo - Tonic Studios. I applied it through a falling snow stencil by MFT stamps. I added two small strips of silver and black cardstock to the left side of the panel, once the texture paste dried. 

Once I liked the way my background looked, I printed the adorable birdie winter digital stamp from my laser printer. I began coloring the smallest details first - the lights and Christmas ornaments. I colored these using my Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens and Kaisercraft gel pens. I then colored the cutest digi bird with my copic markers. My intent was to match the bird with the ink-blended background. I used the blue-green family for most of the bird; BG05, BG07 and BG09. I coated the white part of the eyes with B000. I colored the white part of the winter hat with CO, C1 and C3. I used the purple Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen to add polka dots to the hat and scarf.


I then colored some white scrap paper with the Wilted Violet distress ink. I wanted the sentiment strip to match the background perfectly. The sentiment is from a Stampendous snowman clear stamp set and reads 'winter greetings.' I heat embossed the sentiment with white, Hero Arts embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my non-tradition holiday card! I wish everyone a happy, blessed, healthy and safe holiday season! Thank you for stopping by!

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
