Card Sketach #98 - Tis the Season

Happy Wednesday! Here is sketch #98! This one measures 5 x 5 square.

The squares were cut to 2 x 2 prior to stamping on!

I used a dye ink called Emerald by Impress (Tsukineko) to stamp everything in. I did emboss the sentiment with clear embossing powder, which darkened the color a bit. The leaves of the holly are colored with Copic Markers and the berries are done in Ruby Red Liquid Pearls.

As you can see - the liquid pearl adds a bit of dimension. I also got out my stardust glitter pen and ran it over the dotted lines. It's very sparkly in real life.
