Pure Joy


Less than a month till Christmas already – time for creating more cards.

I used watercolors to create this patterned panel, then added some details with white pen and cut out central part.

‘Joy’ is heat embossed on acetate with white powder.

I popped up my ‘frame’ with two layers of foam adhesive to create some space for sequins.

I was inspired with tutorial by Kathy Racoosin – Loosly Watercolored Backgrounds.

    Shaker cards are great fun, aren’t they? Nice that you have used fresh shades of green too, and embossing on the acetate is a great idea for a bit of extra oomph! Love it.
