Feliz Navidad with Gayatri

Hello everyone,

Gayatri with you sharing my first card with you for the month of October. This is a Christmas card using Happy Owlidays with Evelin T Designs stamp set and coordinating cutaways.

I started with stamping all the images from the stamp set on watercolour paper and colouring them all with Zig Clean Colour Zig pens. Then I used Prisma colour pencils to add shading to the watercolour areas.

For the background, I die cut a watercolour panel using the largest rectangle die from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. Then sponged Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio distress oxide inks. To this background, I used the Scenery: The Big Bang Circles creative screening, to add snow. I used this stencil twice with white pigment ink for subtle snow on the background and with Nuvo Moonstone  as the third layer for some sparkle and texture to the snow. Then I also spattered some Copic opaque white all over the panel. I left this panel to dry while I worked on the sentiment.

The sentiment from the stamp set is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the bottom left of the panel. The using foam adhesive and glue, I adhered the branch, owls and decorative ornaments as shown in the photos. This panel is now adhered to the light grey card base. Then I brushed the ornaments, scarf and hat with clear shimmer and Nuvo crystal glaze. That is all! The card is finished. 

All the w&w supplies used to make this card are listed below. Hope you are inspired by my Christmas card today. If you make a card inspired by my card, please share and tag on social media. Have a wonderful day!
