Ornament Card

 I will be up on the Art Impressions blog this Saturday for the Watercolour Weekend post.  I am using the 5573 - Church and Ornament Set this week!  A fairly quick and easy card using only 2 stamp sets:

I began by painting a wash of #493 on my background, then placed the three ornaments in this set onto a block, keeping in mind the size of my dies.  I  then stamped them onto my Canson XL Watercolour Paper after colouring them with #N65.  I also stamped them onto masking paper, then cut them out to create little ornament masks.  With the masks in place, I used the two pine bough images from 5472 - WC Christmas Wreath Set - and colouring them with #177, I stamped them repeatedly creating Christmas tree branches for the ornaments to hang from.  With a damp brush, I dabbed the branches to soften the lines a little.  After removing the masks, I painted the ornaments in #312/346/725/993/761 - which I chose to match my background paper.  I added metallic silver paint to the tops of the ornaments, and splattered it around the entire card.  I used the new frame from the 5543 Journal Template die to cut the frame in patterned paper, and layered it with 3 pieces of cardstock to create a substantial frame.  I used another rectangle die from the set to cut out my image to be larger than the frame.

I glued everything together, matting the image on some coordinating cardstock.  The spattered silver paint adds a nice bit of sparkle to the card.  Be sure to check out the Ai blog this Saturday to see what Dot and Tricia have to share.  Happy painting!
