Fairy Tale New Year Card

Teal + silver is a color combination that I always wanted to try. Finally I made a holiday card out of it. All of this was new to me, including making cards with embossed outlines. It didn't go very well at first. My first version was made with silver outlines and only teal background (including everything such as houses). It didn't look as stunning as I thought it would be. When I started bringing in some colors on houses and trees, it looked much better.

My husband bought me a full-size MISTI for Xmas (such a surprise!). I was excited to put it in use right away. It was so useful for cards like this with lots of big stamps. I was able to stamp multiple cards and experimented with different colors.

So here's my favorite version of the card.

A color variation of the card. Also, I ink blended the background instead of watercoloring.

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.
Supplies used in this card:
  • Penny Black Gleeful Clear Stamps (PB)
