I am excited to share this card. I really enjoyed coloring this beautiful Christmas Mistletoe Fairy and wanted to create a special card with her. After racking my brain for a few days I decided I wanted to do a little mixed media. I don't do too much mixed media and it looked a little different in my mind than it came out but I actually really love results. I think it has been almost a year since I have done a little mixed media but the process is very relaxing. The process takes me longer, especially drying time but most things I complete by sections anyway so it wasn't too much of an issue. For the background I wanted a certain snowy scene from the Prima marketing paper but I also fussy cut a barn and added it to the scene, then I added falling snow with gesso.
To create this card I used: Christmas Misletoe Fairy by Sweet November Stamps, Prima Marketing paper pad called Christmas in the Country, Nuvo Crystal Drops: Metallic - Soft Mint for the mistletoe berries and Nuvo Glitter Drops: Holiday Cheer for the holly berries, Hello Bluebird: Holly and Pine Die, Elizabeth Craft Designs: Garden Notes - Heart Grapevine Wreath, C.C. Designs: Mistletoe ATS028 and a little white gesso for snow on the tips of the pine needles, pine cone, snow falling and on the wreath. Oh yea on last thing I added some Spectrum Noir: Clear Sparkle pen over the wings.
Here's a little excerpt from the Sweet November Digital Stamps team about Christmas Mistletoe Fairy : And last but not least we have Mistletoe Fairy. This sweet fairy knows that it doesn't matter how a home is decorated for the holidays because as long is it is filled with love and laughter it is the most beautiful place in the world to be no matter the time of year.
Here's a little close-up of the dies I used
I Hope you can see that I added Spectrum Noir: Sparkle pen to the wings
and white gesso for the snow falling.
