Spellbinders BetterPress Christmas Plates and Underpainting


Hello and welcome back to my blog!  Today I'm sharing a few cards I made using some of the new Spellbinders BetterPress Christmas Plates.  I decided to make my backgrounds using a technique that I call underpainting.

The first card uses an ombré look going from a dark pink up to a lighter pink at the top, and it uses the Chic Merry Christmas BetterPress Plate.

This next one uses the Holiday Foliage Joy BetterPress Plate and I focused the underpainting to around the edges.

This final example uses the Christas Greetings BetterPress Plate.  These are so fun to paint, and those underpaintings really make the painting process easier.  If you'd like to see exactly how I did it, you can watch the process here or over on my YouTube Channel.
