Robin's Nest Art Canvas to Holiday Card

 Hello Crafty People!

It's wonderful to be back and creating again. Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
I've created this Holiday Card using a Robin's Nest Art Canvas.
I hope you are inspired to get your craft on!

The complete video is below. 


  • Art Canvas (Mistletoe) and Dew Drops by Robin's Nest 
  • Alcohol Inks and applicator - Ranger Ink
  • Alcohol Marker JG7 - Spectrum Noir
  • 8 1/2 x 11" light green cardstock
  • 5 x 7" red cardstock
  • fabric poinsettia w/ greenery, Gold-tone brad, 8" fabric ribbon, button embellishment, adhesives
INSTRUCTIONS:  *Note: I adhered the canvas to chipboard for stability before beginning. 
  1. Apply Butterscotch and Lettuce alcohol ink to a felt applicator and pounce the background of the entire Art Canvas. 
  2. Color and trace the leaves and stems in dark green alcohol marker (JG7). 
  3. Mat the canvas to the red cardstock.
  4. Using a dry adhesive, attach the fabric ribbon to the matted canvas, wrap ends around and secure on the backside. 
  5. Attach the wrapped, matted canvas to the light green cardstock, folded in half.
  6. Glue the Dew Drops onto the Artsy Canvas over the berries.
  7. Glue the poinsettia and decorative button into place. 
My apologies for the technical difficulties on the "LIVE", I think I figured it out for next time :o)

Robin's Nest Tree Canvas

 Hello Crafty People!

Today's project is a magical Tree Canvas using watercolor metallic pigments, markers and pouncing with alcohol inks.  Easy peasy and lots of fun! Watch the video below to learn about the techniques used. 


Metallic blue pigment (ArtQuest)
Brown Marker (Zig)
Alcohol inks: Sunshine Yellow, Butterscotch, Pesto and Stream (Ranger Ink)
Felt pouncing tool (Ranger Ink-Tim Holtz)
Paint brush, water and a trimming tool

1. Wet the blue metallic pigment with water and brush onto background.
2. Color the tree trunk and branches with brown marker.
3. Place a fresh piece of felt onto the pouncing tool, load with Sunshine Yellow and Butterscotch alcohol inks in a semi circle/oval shape.  Pounce the color all over the tree leaves area.
4. Begin with a fresh piece of white felt, load the same way with Pesto and Stream alcohol ink and pounce over the tree leaves area until you get the desired result.  Add more yellow if desired. 

*Not included on the video: Because the blue metallic pigment may smudge, spray seal with clear coat in your desired finish, gloss or matte.  AND, I sprayed the foliage with a cream / gold metallic spray because I just needed more bling!  :o)

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!  I hope you're inspired to do some creating today.
See you next time!
