Christmas Baubles and Tin Foil.

Hello All, 
I love the technique of dripping Alcohol Inks on foil, the colours all run into each other to reveal wonderful and unique effects. On this card I diecut a frame from the foil after I backed it onto cardstock, I also decorated the baubles, fussy cutting parts to create dimension, and some glitter to give them sparkle.

My leaves are also die-cut and coloured up in distress inks, as I have explained in a previous post here ( in case you missed it).

The Background is watercolour paper that has been lightly stamped using Tombow markers then huffing on the stamp before applying to the paper.

I am seriously in a fantastically happy place while I sit here and admire this phenomenal Christmas card. I just can't get over it (again) how much the paper looks like metal on those leaves and the foil with inking for baubles.....sensational. :D
I might be a wee bit partial as you are my friend, but honestly, in my most unbiased opinion...this is outstanding!!!!

I thought I had left a comment on this post already! That is one beautiful frame surrounding another colorful, beautiful Christmas scene. I don't believe I've seen a frame die with those wonderful details.
