Scenic Christmas

Hello there. I have been doing some practicing with scenic cards – totally inspired by Nichol Spohr and the Lawn Fawn videos. I have a way to go to get anywhere near their skills – but I’ll keep trying, listening to the hints and tips – and practice, practice, practice.

Here is a very simple scenic card inspired by the current challenge at AAA Cards:

The theme is moonlight…..I started with a die cut circle and blended Distress Oxides using the circle as a mask. I then added some glitter pen to the white moon and it actually smudged some of the circle – but I liked the look. It gives the moon a whispy look – so I carried on and smudged it more to get the effect you see here.

The owls are from Clearly Besotted, and it is me trying again to use Crafters Companion Illustrator alcohol pens to achieve a dimensional colouring look. I think I succeeded – and liked the way they turned out.

The glitter card is a couple of die cuts using stitched border dies – I think I’m at least getting the hang of doing them.

I tried a couple of sentiments, but I didn’t like how they looked – so I left them off. I am sure the recipient will know it’s a Christmas card……!

I’m now off to try my new purchase of the reveal wheel set of dies – wish me luck!
