Penny Black Bountiful Berries and Simon Says Stamp Christmas card

 



Hello friends and welcome to another Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.



 
As always, we are are an anything goes Christmas challenge but each month we invite you to have some fun with our optional twist and this time that is 'berries'.

I came up with this card



I used my new Penny Black Bountiful Berries die and cut it from watercolour paper. I then coloured the branch and berries with Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens, and when it was dry, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the berries to add some shine.


The background panel is cut from white card with a My Favourite Things Blueprints 33 die. I blended various blue Distress Oxide inks onto it and added the white sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

The team has a lot to show you over on the blog and it would be great if you decide to join us. 

I'd like to play along at
