Hello my friends. With all the rain we've had I have found myself thinking about Christmas rather than summer.
Then I read this weeks LIM blog and I found myself drifting towards a snowy scene.
In the end I made 2 cards. I started with a piece of Sheena stamping card and masked off the lower third with a torn piece of copy paper. I inked the exposed area with distress inks. I used: tumbled glass, stormy sky, faded jeans and chipped sapphire on one and on the other I omitted faded jeans and used dusty concord.
I then flicked water at them and dried them with kitchen roll after a few seconds and created a snowstorm. Then I stamped the tree in first and second generation black archival ink.
I added some shading to snow and added some snow to trees with a white sharpie.
I then added some frosted lace stickles to the blue one and a mixture of icicle and frosted lace to trees. Shame it doesn't show in pics.
I then stamped the sentiment in black archival ink and added clear wink of stella to Christmas.
Stamps are from Sheena Douglass a little bit scenic range.
I stuck the images down and added card candy to corner. I added frosted lace to them to give them some texture.
And voila' 2 Christmas cards finished. I have 5 ready now, the earliest I have started, Theresa xx.
I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
Less is more - theme: faux bleaching
Creative corner challenges - glittermania
Happy Little stamper mixed media - texture
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
