Creating this tropical Christmas card is truly quick and easy. Simply stamp your images in Onyx Black ink, heat emboss them with clear powder and start coloring! I love using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Crystal Clear pen as a waterbrush for my projects. It blends just like a waterbrush, but adds a stunning shimmer to everything it touches! Add whatever colors you prefer - don't be afraid to go non-traditional Christmas. These pens dry fairly quickly, but you can always use a heat gun to speed up the process! Then, adhere to a card base using foam squares and add some sequins. That's it! Simple and quick, but with amazing results!
