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.
