CAS Mistletoe

Hi and welcome back to another Merry Monday challenge.  This week, Debbie has given us a theme challenge - use mistletoe on your card.



I went very CAS with my card this week:



I inked up my mistletoe stamp with black ink, the used a Q-tip to rub off the ink from the bow before coloring it with a Cherry Cobbler marker.  I then loosely colored the leaves with a Copic marker and colored the berries with a white gel pen before painting over that with a Wink of Stella pen - which I couldn't capture on film!  I used dimensionals to pop the narrow panel up on the Cherry Cobbler card base.




Thanks for looking.  Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration.

Products used:

Stamps:  Christmas Blessings (SU), Signature Christmas Greetings (PTI)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler marker, Copic marker, White Gel Pen, Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren

Ooh, this is lovely - so clean, and crisp. I'm tipping you used a "cotton bud", not a "Q-tip", though. ;)
