Since I had laryngitis and couldn't work, after resting the better part of the day, I decided to work on Christmas cards. The card is Fabriano 140 pound cold pressed watercolor paper to which I applied Luminarts shimmering mist Jasper Red. Spritzed with water, too, and dabbed. The ornaments are patterned paper stamped with music score (Quietfire Design Crows plate-site listed in links) in Versacolor celedon and the crow with flourish (also from the same rubber plate), embossing ink and Ranger superfine detail silver. I edged the circles (cut with my Martha Stewart circle cutter, which I find harder to use than I expected) with embossing ink and also embossed with the detail silver. I punched the metal ornament hanger with a tulip-looking EK Success punch from metal repair tape. The silver "thread" is silver Sakura Jelly Roll pen.
