Taylored Expressions "Seasonal Sprig" Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Today I this year's Christmas card to share, using Taylored Expressions "Seasonal Sprig" stamp and stencil set.  I stamped the sprig first with black ink.  I used my We R Memory stamp press to position the large stamp and help create a production line for the 65 cards I sent out this year. 

The stencil really makes it so simple to color.  There are 2 full stencils one for the berries and another for the leaves.

I applied the color with blending brushes applying the lighter ink 1st filling in the image then coming back with the darker shade to add depth.  It went pretty quickly and is really a dramatic effect when you lift the stencil.

I used papers and inks from PaperTrey Ink.  Cardstock Scarlet Jewel (shown above) and Olive Twist (below).  Inks were Pure Poppy (lighter) and Scarlet Jewel (darker) for the berries and Olive Twist (lighter) and Ripe Avocado (highlight) for the leaves.

The stamp set has some great sentiments.  I chose "Let Heaven and Nature Sing" for the front. 

Inside the card I used verse Luke 2:10-11

“I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” - Luke 2: 10-11

Thanks for stopping by...

Blessings to you this Christmas!
