Hello everyone. There is a new challenge just begun at Cardz 4 Galz, and this time the theme is ‘Let It Snow’. It’s an ideal time to create more Christmas cards for your stash, and I hope you find time to join us with this theme for the next two weeks.
Here is my card:
Now this stamp set was a challenge – it is the ‘Invisible Snowman’ from Kitchen Sink Stamps. there is no outline to line things up with, it’s a case of placing items where you think they will go and then layering all the stamps for each individual item.
Yep – each item stamped has two, three, even four layers – and I like layering stamps. It still took me a while to figure out how to do this…….and even at the end I still went in with Copic C00 and C01 to create a light kinda outline for him – and added some snow lines underneath him – very faint, but they’re there.
Then I thought the background was a little too blank – so I went in with two lighter greys and two Uniko snowflakes – I’m itching to make something else with them – and stamped all around him. So it’s snowing….maybe….
I layered him with a red shiny card, and stamped the Clearly Besotted sentiment – a freebie with a crafting magazine.
So – definitely going to play with this guy more, but I’ll need patience – and no puddy tat trying to ‘help’!
I hope you can come and join us – I would love to see your ‘Let It Snow’ creations in our gallery.
