Deck The Halls

This design is inspired by a technique by Sheena Douglass.  Using a piece of watercolour card cut to size a large corner stamp (in this case a Holly swirl) is stamped in two colours of distress ink all over the card.   Then water is spritzed over the stamped images, making the ink bleed and blend together.  A piece of acetate is stamped and heat embossed with a co-ordinating  focal image.  When the background is dry the acetate is attached to it with brads.  A greeting is stamped and heat embossed onto a piece of vellum which is wrapped around the focal panel and attached on the back.  The panel is then matted and layered onto the base card.
