I have so much fun creating Pocket Letters and I'd like to share one of my techniques today. I used the new Christmas stamp sets together with the "Affirmations", "Music Notes" and the "Pines Fir Yew" set.
Let's start! I used a piece of watercolor cardstock that I cut to the size 10.5" by 7.5" and embossed some of the branches from the Pine Fir Yew set with white powder.
I colored the background with the Marabu Art Spray. I really like these sprays, because they are waterproof when they are dry.
I used Distress Ink Walnut Stain to add some droplets. I pressed the the ink pad onto an acrylic block, added some water and let the drops fall down.
Finally I made some smaller splatters and used a bit of Pearlescent watercolors to make it shimmering.
I stamped some circles from the "Round in Circles" set, some of the cones from the "Frosty Friends" set and the "Music Notes". I used Distress Ink "Walnut Stain" for the Circles and StazOn "Jet Black" (because of the embossing) for the cones and the music notes. I cut my page into 9 pieces before I added those stamps. It would have been easier to stamp first and then cut!!!
I used gesso together with Distress Glitter "Clear Rock Candy" on some of the edges of every single card to get a frosty look.
Now it was time to prepare the images that I wanted to add to my pockets. I colored them with Distress Inks and with some of the golden Pearlescent watercolors. The Gift and the bow were embossed with gold powder.
I added the embellishments and filled in the pockets:
The "believe" comes with the "Affirmations" set.
The house is a die from Marianne Design. The doily comes from Cottage Cutz.
The images from the Frosty Friends and the Cozy Christmas set are my drawings and I have a giveaway on my facebook page where you can win your favourite of this sets:
