I made this as a GD for the mid month reminder post of the CAS Watercolor Challenge, and it also works perfectly for today's splattering challenge (a technique that I am obsessed with!!!).
BG: smooshing with DI ink on WC CS, then splattered/blotted with water, then splattered with black zigs and white acrylic paint
Leaves and berries: Penny Black winter berry die cut from white cs, used the smooshing method to add color to the leaves and berries (at least 2 colors layered on each), then splattering on these also. Sponged a bit of color around the edges for definition. Spectrum sparkle pen added to the berries for sparkle!
Sentiment: stamped in black
Assembly: Add embossed strip across bottom, add thin strip of red glitter cs, attach panel to card front, adhere branch and berries, add sequins for bling!
