We have a Christmas Collage this week using a combination of stamps & embellishments & just the kind of thing I love. I started with the card blank & brayered it all over using a green ink. Next I stenciled the holly leaves using the mask & then overprinted with "Many Christmases" & Vintage Sepia. The 2 stamped images were embossed with Detail Copper & Christmas Cottage was then just given some highlighting & shading with Tombow pens. I then rounded all corners before layering onto the copper pearl card & attaching to the card blank. Now punch some holly leaves from the pearl card & give them some vein character using  a DEET (double ended etching tool). Thread some twine through the button holes before arranging with the leaves at the bottom left hand corner. The brads come from last years set " Christmas Trees & Snowflakes" Glitter brads & I have darkened the gold snowflakes with a permanent marker to be more in keeping with my colours. The gems come from one of the  Mark Richards "Cluster" sets to finish off the collage.
