Holly & Ivy, Red, Green & Gold

Over on Something Completely Different this week it is a new month and a new challenge. Christmas Cards, starting with Holly and Ivy with red, green and gold.
I have inked the background paper. Can't remember how as did it ages ago. I think I tried to do some resist stamping which didn't work to well and then just played with greens. The Holly stamp is a DeNami stamp. One of the very first stamps I bought. I liked the movement within it. After stamping I loosely used an embossing pen to roughly add colour to the leaves. I didn't want neatness more a sense of freedom to it, and used Verdigris embossing powder. The red berries were done in the same way but obviously using red embossing powder this time. The red card was randomly stamped with a Paper Artsy stamp and gold embossed.
