The pic is difficult to make out. There are various cardstocks including some mirri boards and some foiled Christmas backgrounds. There are toppers and embellishments and also some foam pads. It is a mix of Christmas and everyday so hopefully something to suite everyone.
Now onto today's card. I thought i should feature a Christmas card toady. It is getting closer and i'm nowhere near finishing my cards.
I started with a piece of white stamping card and brushed 3 aquatints across it. I used a blue, turqoise and green. I also added a bit of black to darken the top edge.
For the hills I used a torn piece of card and applied distress ink with a make up sponge. I used peeled paint and forest moss.
The trees are stamped with olive and library green archival ink.
The moon and clouds were created by a faux bleaching technique using just water and a brush. Santa and the reindeer were stamped in black archival ink. I also stamped second generation ink reindeer.
I added the reins with a fine black micron pen and some white highlights with a sharpie pen.
Using same pen I added some stars to the sky.
I wanted to add some interest around edge, so I went round with snowfkae stamps in versamark and heat embossed with stardust powder. This adds some glitz. I also added some sparkle to moon with a clear wink of stella pen.
Finally I darkened edges with blue distress inks and added some black sootin the end. This made the snowflakes pop even more.
For the sentiment I used the new alphabet dies from Hochanda.com
All the stamps are from Claritystamp Ltd.
So i hope you like my offering and I hope to see you joining in with these celebrations, Theresa xx.

Your card is just gorgeous! I love the scene you created. I tried to figure out how to follow you but I just couldn't figure out how to do it. I clicked friend but I wasn't sure if that was all I had to do. Sometimes computers are not self explanatory. Thanks for the fun hop. Happy celebration!ReplyDelete
thanks Donna. i think you just have to press the G+ button at the top near my pic. hope that helps xxDelete

A fantastic scene you've made here Theresa and the faux bleaching works beautifully on the moon and the added clouds and I also love the white pen highlights on the sleigh, and finished so prettily with the sparkly embossed snowflakes which make a fabulous frame to the picture. xReplyDelete

Hi Theresa - Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my creation I uploaded to TTCRD - you stated "I don't get why it's a wobble card" - I am not sure if you are familiar with Action Wobbles - they are items that you place behind a die cut - such as my pumpkin - and then when you tap the pumpkin it will wobble back and forth. I use them now and then on creations as they are fun to watch the item wobble. If I had a video camera I would take a video showing how the wobble works. If you are interested - here is a video I found on You Tube if you wish to see how they workReplyDelete
They give action to your card and this is a short video - thanks again for stopping by and have a blessed week.
thanks for getting back to me Gail xxDelete
