Hello, After a couple of days away. I have come home to finish this card:
I used a couple of Purple Onion Designs stamps. When I first saw that these stamps aren’t mounted – and being completely spoiled by mounted red rubber stamps – I hesitated getting some. However – I’m glad I did get them. All I did was add some low tack tape-runner to the back of the stamps so they stuck to my Misti – worked a treat.
I first stamped the snowman and critters, then fussy-cut a mask for them, then stamped the cabin. I also cut a mask for the cabin, and ink blended – Salvaged Patina Distress Ink – for the sky. Before removing the masks, I add some water splatters.
I chose Distress Ink on the Neenah 80lb card stock, as I didn’t want the full-on solid ink blending you get with Distress Oxides.
I coloured the images with Copics, adding a cool grey to the outline of the snowman, and created some snowy looking lines pn the rest of the white area.
I purposely didn’t colour the trees – I thought there was already enough turquoise, and I wanted to stick with the colours for the current Color Throwdown Challenge – which doesn’t include green!
I was going to cover them with some glitter……..but decided not to, because I would have had to add glitter virtually all over – and I wasn’t in a glitter mood! This way, I think the colouring and masking is effective enough…
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – Turquoise, Brown, Kraft, White
Colour Crazy Challenge – anything goes colouring (week 40)
Pink Gem Challenge – anything goes
