I had this idea for a grey bell. So I took two of the Happy Little Stampers sentiments (jingle bells and jingle all the way) from the mixed christmas sentiments. I black heat embossed JINGLE ALL THE WAY in the very center... then I white heat embossed JINGLE BELLS all the way across the rest of the panel.
I used my peerless water color Pearl Gray and Neutral Tint and I just painted them across in stripes and let them blend together.. it looks to me like a cloudy night.. I simply love how it turned out. I dried it then started my die cutting... instead of stacking them with white paper I cut out of black paper and stacked 4 layers up together and then put my pannel on top.
I think the black card stock gives it an instant shadow.
Go on make a card.. I bet already you are singing Jingle Bells.. Jingle Bells.. Jingle all the way!
