Christmas in June

Hi here at 
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge
It's Christmas in June.

This weeks prize is from The Secret Crafter herself Wendy. So join in this week and you could win yourself a lovely bag of crafting goodies.

For my card this week I have used a metal stencil from Dreamweaver. The background is just done using ink through the stencil, placed randomly, leaving the bottom corner free for the main image.

The main image uses the same stencil and double sided adhesive sheet. You need to put soap on the back of the stencil so that it doesn't stick to the sticky sheet permenantly. Then glitter is added to the sheet just pale green to the leaves and red to the berries. This may sound odd as the leaves are two shades but the other bit come later. Remove the stencil and put white or irridescent glitter over the rest. Then place the stencil back over the image and colour the edges of the leaves with dark green permenent pens. Then it is just layered onto pearlescent green card to finish.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Joyful Stamper - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Holly Jolly Christmas - Bingo(glitter, blue)
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
