Happy Sunday Evening, crafters! I hope everyone enjoyed the long Holiday weekend! I am going back to the ’50s with this card. I love this Hero Arts set. The fire is colored using prismacolor pencils. The colors chosen for the fire are based off of a youtube video by Lisa Mitrochin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtK0o1t3RarFc. The remainder of the card is stamped in Versamark Onyx Black Ink and colored with Arteza Real Brush Pens. A little glimmer was added to all the ornaments with clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment is embossed in Emerald Creek’s Black Cheery powder. The background papers are papers taken from my stash: old Sizzix pattern for the wall, white for the base board and grey for the rug. Fairly simple, straight forward stamping and coloring.
I have a very whimsical, over-the-top envelope for this retro card. The envelope had to have a 1950s vibe as well. So….. White Christmas theme it is. The paper used is from Carta Bella: “A Very Merry Christmas” purchased from Amazon. The Haynes sisters are a digital file from the etsy Shop:AddisonWelch. Blue fuzzy feathers had to be used for the fans; to adhere the feathers I used Distressed Oxide Icicles Collage Medium. The Sisters “sentiment” is cut from a Cricut Access file and sprayed with Mica Spray in Frosted Juniper. My “background” is covered by acetate. Don’t want to lose any feathers. 😊 Thoughts??
I have a fun “White Christmas” trivia….. The Song “Sisters” was sung ONLY by Rosemary Clooney. Aparently, all of the singing for Vera-Ellen was dubbed and Rosemary sung both parts of this song. Who knew???
