Painted Holly

Good morning and welcome to the final week of January. 

As usual we have a technique challenge for you at 52CCT. This time it's everyone's favourite:

I embossed these holly leaves in Bronze and then filled in with Brusho inks. I like painting inside embossed shapes as it makes it easier to keep the paint inside the outline! I'd love to be a skilled artist but I don't spend the time practising so this is good enough for me. 

This panel was mounted in several ways and even went into the bin before I settled on this layout. One of my favourite and most used. 
I couldn't decide on where to add a sentiment so there isn't one. 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x


  1. No sentiment needed on this pretty card Alison. Just lovely!

  2. I love the aged background, looks really fab to highlight the embossed holly and berries. It reminds me of batique art and its very pretty x

  3. quelle merveille Alison, élégante, sobre avec une touche de vintage, biz
