Today I have 3 cards and 2 techniques for you! This first card is a shaker card and I will explain this one below!
But first, I wanted to share a different coloring technique. Pointillism, which is basically coloring with dots.I used different sizes and different tones of green Tombow Dual Brush Pens. My lightest color was 133 Chartreuse, which I used in most of the Cling Create A Christmas Set tree stamp. But instead of coloring with strokes like I normally do I made more dots. You don't really notice the dots unless you look closely. The effect of pointillism is that the eye blends the colors and that is why you don't really see the yellow, because is one of the colors that makes green.
Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. I also used Dot Sparklers Class A Peel Stickers in Hologram Red. I used the Tombow Foam Tape to give dimension to the circle and the tree die cut.
95% of the time my cards are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. That means my mat is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches and the accent paper base (or in this case the only paper I used) is 4 x 5 1/4. I tried to place the tree die from the Create A Christmas Die Cut Set as centered as my eyes let me. I kept the die in place with a thin washi tape that is not very strong. You don't want it to ruin your paper.
Stampendous! Shaved Ice, Christmas Micro Glitter Kit, and sequins. To concentrate all the goodness I made a line outside the tree with the Tombow Mono Twin Permanent Marker and used the Fuse Tool in those areas.
Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive is the absolute best to glue the plastic sleeve!
I hope you enjoyed these cards! I had so much making them! Don't forget to hop tomorrow too!
