jane bosi} This lovely image is so much fun to work with! I'm not wholly convinced it's a just for Christmas time image! Despite being Partridge in a Pear Tree, and all the Christmasy connotations, this is an image for year round use! It's easy to omit the sentiment when stamping, as I've done, and is seasonably versatile.....because I said so! LOL!!
I wanted an end project that was soft and shabby. I started by coloring right on to the stamp face with distress
markers and then stamping on Fabriano water color paper. Next, I ran my
aqua brush over the tree trunk and branches to enhance the water colored
I added accent stamping with both the Fresh Chevron and French Text
backgrounds. I lightened
the edges of the focal image with gesso rubbings, allowing just portions
of the french script to be seen. I love how this softened the look and
feel of the card.
In all the hustle and bustle, I hope you are still finding time to feed your soul with a little paper and ink....Be Awesome! TTFN, Jane
