I started this the other day thinking to make a Christmas card with it, but a childhood friend's mother passed away suddenly and now I'm needing a sympathy card. I stamped the three mistletoe images in Mowed Lawn. I used a black Elegant Writer pen to add shading around the leaves by bleeding after activating with water. I also scribbled along the edges of my paper with a blue Elegant Writer pen then bled the blue to watercolor the bg. Once I had these where I wanted I used a fine brush to activate the distress ink and watercolor the leave a bit too. After it was all dry, I used a brown Elegant Writer to make the stem part distinct again. I embossed the mistletoe berries with white EP, I then used a Sahara Sand marker to shade around them. I used a Gelly Roll gold pen to color in the small highlight portions on each berry. To add some snow, I used Crystal Effects and glued on some clear/white glass micro beads. To make the card, I tore the page down to fit on a 5x7" card base cut from Chocolate Chip. I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment a few times.
