To create the leaves I blended a mix of distress inks onto white card stock & then die cut the leaves using the inky blend, & I have coloured the image with copics.

My second card today features a die from Simon Says Stamps new release
& is called Holly Oval Frame.

There are so many gorgeous products in this new release that I want them all lol.
I created this card when I was really poorly & as my head was absolutely pounding so I chose to create it very simply and even that was a struggle at the time!

I created a simple water colour wash background with Primas Pastel Dreams Water Color Confections set & die cut my Holly Oval Frame using Hero Arts Woodgrain card stock. I also used Simon Says Stamps & Dies On A String set from the STAMPtember release & stamped the snowflakes and sentiment using Simon's Audrey Blue, Deep Sea & Surf Blue ink pads.
I used foam pads to mount the Holly Oval Frame & also some of the snowflakes to add more dimension to my card & finished with some Simply White Crystal Drops.

 I have created the background using Impression Obsessions French Script stamp which I've heat embossed with white embossing powder and then use my Prima watercolor paints to add some colour & I have gone for a shabby chic look on this card and have distressed the paper edges with my scissors
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's new Stamptember On A String stamp set, & I've added a few finishing touches using a pretty Prima flower,  Simon's Stitched SnowflakesTonic Nuvo White Crystal Drops.
