Christmas cards by Marianne

Hello there and Merry Christmas!

Marianne here today and I’m hoping you had a beautiful Christmas time together with your family and loved ones!

Today I’m showing some Christmas cards and also featuring some of the new Art Anthology products, as gold and diamond colorations inks and also the smooth paste! Awesome products as always!

I made some small steps for the cards and here they are:

First I started with a craft cardboard and added some of the smooth paste.
Next I used one of the cool tools to make a pattern.
Then added some of the Diamond mist. In fact, it’s not easy to see, but I wanted to test how the Diamond mist would be on white medium.

Nest step is colors and here I used Studio Blue and Peacock Feathers

Here is the finished card.
As you see, I also used the stencil with stard combined with the Smooth Paste. This paste is just fabolous and almost looks like plaster when dry.
Just remember to stir before use!
I addes some stars embedibles and lots of flowers.
The flowers has a coat with Art Anthology Gesso random places.

The second card, on black bazzil (back side)
Here I also used the smooth paste, Gold and  Diamond  Colorations.
Used a credit card to just drag the paste out
After dry, (it dries very quickly) I added the diamond Colorations. Not very easy to see here so I decided to use the Gold Colorations instead.
Much better and the Gold is really cool on black!!

I worked with several cards at the same time and here is a third card using Gold colorations and the cool stencil with stars

On the last photo under here,  your see one card with stars and the other is just the stencil filled with Gold Colorations pressed on the cardstock as a mopup.
