I mounted the holly die on red cardstock and wanted to add some red holly berries. My first attempt was to use my old Liquid Pearls, which resulted in a big blog near the upper left corner. Since this didn't work for me, I changed to a Viva Pearl Pen. This worked a bit better, but I still felt it lacked something. I added the die cut Merry Christmas by Tim Holtz (Sizzix).
