Hello there. Before I proceed I would like to wish all of you a blessed Christmas and a prosperous 2015.
This set of cards all started with an idea going round in my head and a lot of what ifs. i tired them out and this is the result.
Below is a pic of both cards together and further down there is another version.
In all of them I started with a piece of kraft card and I stamped the trees in black archival ink. I clear embossed it in the one with the stag.
I tore a piece of copy paper and using snow cap adirondack and a make up sponge i created the snow extending it out from stamped image.
I dipped the end of a brush in the same ink and plotted it on trees. using a white sharpie pen I added centres to splodges and some snow on branches and trunks. I also added some light shadows on trunks.
In the Christmas one I decided to add the stag for some added interest.
Sentiments are stamped in versamark and embossed in ivory.
Some matting and layering and pearls finish the cards off.
Below is the invite that started it all off.
A friend of mine tried to describe it and asked me to make her a wedding card along the same lines.
Not having seen invite I came up with this card.
All the stamps apart from wedding one are from Claritystamp Ltd.
I do hope you like my makes. I enjoyed the way an idea just mushroomed and flourished, Theresa xx
