Christmas Mini's Holly

I've been playing with the holly leaves from the ~{Christmas Mini's}~ and using them as accents on Christmas cards. They really are very cute and as there are 5 in the pack, along with stars and sleighs, they go a long way.

I have painted them with acrylic paints, edged the leaves with Distress Inks and added a line along the middle with a pen before adding Glossy Accents. For the berries, I have added a bit of white pen for a highlight then used Viva Decor Gloss Gel Pen in Transparent. I did the berries individually, leaving about half hour in between for them to start setting.
