Hey everyone. I’m back today sharing Brea Reese holiday lights with you. These lights were super easy to make and can easily be recreated using different colors of ink. One of my favorite color combinations is red and teal. I know these colors are not normally ones must people would choice for holiday lights. However, remember it’s your creation so you can make it any color you want. 😉
I started off by making large backgrounds on Brea Reese waterproof paper. Mixing three blue shades of ink on one panel and two red shades of ink on the other. I made sure to add lots of colorless solution to keep the colors moving and flowing nicely together. While I let them I worked on the background.
Gray card stock is definitely a color I go to when I want a soft background for an image or in this case my lights. I trimmed down a panel of fog card stock and stamped a cheerful holiday message in the corner with Versamark. Next I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. For the string that hold my lights, I dipped white baker’s twine in gold watercolor and heat set it.
Now it was time to assemble my card. I pulled the string through the top of each light and attached the string to the back of the gray panel. For dimension on my card I popped up each light with foam dots and staggered them across the top of the panel. I adhered this panel to a white card base made with 100 lb Neenah Solar White card stock. Additional interest was a must for the background so I pulled out a few gems and flat back sequins to scatter around the lights.
As I mentioned in the beginning of the post, these Brea Reese holiday lights are super easy one to recreate. Color palette are available on my color combinations board on Pinterest if you need color inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll see you back here soon.
