For the card I am showing you today I used the Ornate Ornaments stamp set. I started out by stamping three of the ornaments onto some Canson watercolor paper with Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed them using a gold embossing powder. After that I taped the paper to a board for painting.
I painted the three ornaments using my Gansai Tambi watercolor set. For the ornaments I used color numbers 32, 35, and 906. The 906 is a metallic white gold color and made the ornaments really shimmer. For the background I used the color number 51, 52, and 56. You can check out my Gansai Tambi color chart to get a better idea of the colors used.
Once the paint was completely dry I removed it from the board. Using a Copic multi-liner and a T-Square ruler I added strings and bows to each ornament. I then placed the paper into my MISTI tool to stamp a sentiment. I picked two stamped from the Ornate Ornaments stamp set and stamped them using Simon Says Stamp intense black ink. Once stamped the two stamps read "Wishing you joy." I then pulled out a card base and adhered a piece of red cardstock to the front of it. I took my painted piece and popped it up on that using foam tape.
For the finishing touches on this card I took my white gel pen and added highlights to the ornaments as well as dots throughout the green background. I also added some white sequins and green half pearls using my Tombow glue. Finally I went over the star shaped ornament with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.
