A Simple Christmas Card


Hi Friends,

Well I was  just about done with gifts and I realized

I  needed a few more Christmas cards for neighbor gifts.

I had some blank cards on hand-

They were never used because they had a glossy finish.

I plan to use acrylic paint for my design.



I just went into my paints to see what I had-

Green for the wreath and garland, grey for wood-like background,

white for snow,

 and other colors for the ornaments.

I also used a fine point ink marker and gold pen.

The stiff toothbrush is used to splatter white paint 'snow'.





I used gray with a dry brush for the back ground of the card

and the left edge on envelope.





With green, I made a wreath shape.




On the envelope edge I painted a garland.





Use the back of a round paint brush to form the dot ornaments.




Add more colors.




After the dots dry we can add more details with a pen.


Snow' can be added at the end using white paint on a paintbrush.

Add paint to tips of toothbrush and flick paint onto project

using your thumbnail.

Use a permanent ink fine point marker to write a sentiment.




Now I have enough to put aside  for later.


MERRY

CHRISTMAS

and

 HAPPY NEW YEAR !
