The Mixed Media Card Challenge #18 – Celebration – Reminder Post II

I am excited to be here today with a couple of cards for The Mixed Media Card Challenge’s reminder post.

Here’s our December Challenge Graphic:

Here is the first one: This is card #5 in my series of holly cards.

IMG_1825edited Slide72I started this card by doing a sketch/watercolor painting of some holly which I had picked from my yard.Slide12 Then, I scanned the painting into my computer and printed out several copies in order to be able to play with this image. I wanted to be able to render it in multiple different mixed media ways.


Slide73  I’d like to play this card at Virginia’s View Challenge #21: All About Glitter and Simon’s Monday Challenge: Just a Pinch (Stickles/Glitter). Anything Goes. The holly on my first card reminds me of a 1950’s illustration. After I had finished coloring this one in I went looking for a 1950’s holly card.

And this is what I found! 🙂

Card #6 in this holly series:

  1. How fun to see holly interpreted in so many awe-inspiring ways! Loved seeing the different ways the holly looked and how it has that soft ethereal look to it, yet it’s still full of energy. This is so perfect for the season, yet is fresh and new because of the clever techniques you used. You did an incredible job here and I’m so glad you shared your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
