Hello again. I have been playing with colours, and trying to create a scenic card, and a second card which made me smile as I was colouring it.
First is the scenic card:
and a close-up of the silver bling:
The base is water-colour card and blended blues from my Distress Oxide collection. I then took the die cut from Avery Elle ‘Let it Snow‘ and cut the little holes/stars into it. I then splashed it with Gansai Tambi ‘Starry Colours‘ for some extra shimmer.
The Santa Clause and Reindeer are from the same stamp set as the two critters – Lawn Fawn ‘Winter Skies‘, stamped in black and heat embossed.
The hills and little town are cut out of silver glitter card, and again cut using the hillside dies – both from Lawn Fawn – and layered out of sync – so they create some dimensional hills.
The two little critters are coloured with my Zigs, as are the trees.
The second card:
This is a cheshire cat stamp from Visible Image. stamped first and masked off, then using a stencil to create a weird background…….then coloured with my Zigs.
This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers – pets
Time Out Challenges – colourful
The first scenic card will be entered into the following challenges:
Just Us Girls – celestial elements
52cct – Christmas and silver
I now have three days off work, and I plan to craft and craft and craft to get a substantial stock of Christmas cards – but as I have also received a bunch of the new Altenew stamps – there may be some general cards too…………you can’t have too many of them, either, can you?
