Berry Branch

The Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today is to use pink ribbon for Breast Cancer awareness month. I did not have any pink ribbon, so I went a different way and made this Christmas card. I first embossed my card base with the Sizzix embossing folder. I die cut the branch and bow from watercolour paper and the sentiment from Neenah cardstock. For the branch and bow, I watercoloured using my Zig Brushes, and once dry painted both with Wink of Stella. The stems in several different shades of green and the berries and bow in different shades of pink. For the sentiment, I wanted to keep it soft looking, and want some sparkle, so I scribbled some of the pale pink colour on my craft mat and picked it up with my Wink of Stella Brush and applied the pink lightly as I went with the Stella Brush.  A few sequins finished my card. Initially, I had the sentiment towards the bottom - it looked off to me, but I thought it was just me. The eye of the camera does not lie. Totally off, so even though it was attached with glossy accents I managed to get it removed and place it where it should have been from the start.
Thank you for dropping by ...
