Sneaky Peep day 2 Holly Paint Fusion Stamp

hi everyone
hope your enjoying the new Fusion Stamp Range from Sheena Douglass
i have just popped over to sheena's blog she is doing a give away !!!!why not pop over and check it out ..
leave your link you could be the winner...good luck!

so here we go ....
i stamped onto water coloured paper with versa fine smoky grey ink ready to start painting
 first  wet the paper well with clean water while it still had a sheen on paper i dropped in some watered down yellow just to take away the brightness of the paper once it was dry i painted the  stamped image

 i used the foliage greens changing the strenght of the colours on some of the leaves by adding more or less of the darkest green paint on my brush....then just a tad of red  for berries done with brush handle dip and dot perfect berries.......... i do love doing that it's so easy
 when it was dry i went in with watered down brown to add shadows to the over lapping leaves and just around some of the outer edges it makes it pop ...after it was all dry i used glossy accent  to get the shine holly leaves have when in full sun light .

i cut it out with decal nestie and distressed with tim holtz inks matted and layered onto  green satin card stock  then plain white which i edged with cut glass glitter added a ribbon bow....a few pearls and peel offs just for that extra touch of bling....

thank you for dropping by today
