Holly and bird ornament

Another Christmas card done.
I used a holly Tim Holtz stencil, started off by adding white ink, then layered on some green. White liquid enamel dots.
The stamps used are new to me, they're from a set from Inkadinkado. Cut the panel with a wonky stitched die from MFT.
Finished the card off by adding as gingham ribbon bow.

This card is for:
Winter Wonderland - Use Ribbon, Twine or Lace
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes for Christmas
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes

Looked at the card close-up first before reading your post and was trying to work out how you got that fabulous effect on the holly - really amazing effect and one I hope you won't mind me copying. (I'm pinning it - hope that's okay.)

Gorgeous card Pia, your stenciling is beautiful and such a cute little bird. I've bought the white and crystal Nuvo drops but have not played with them yet, now I am anxious after seeing your beautiful drops.

Love this one Pia, I thought it was the die cut - you've created a great effect with the stencil and that little bird is so sweet.

Beautiful card, Pia. Love how your green holly fills your card and showcases your pretty bauble beautifully. The pop of the red bow is just the perfect finishing touch.
Have a great day,
Lena
