We are starting a new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always ‘anything goes Christmas/festive’. Here is my card:
This stamp is from Pink Ink – and is quite large……so the card ended up being a substantial size – but fun to make.
I stamped then heat embossed the image, then stamped another to make a mask for the top portion – the tree and top of the card.
I then ink blended the background with Distress Inks, before water-colouring my image. Some of the smaller details I coloured with Copics. Once it had all dried, I splattered some Copic Opaque White all over – I mean all over – to get a blizzard effect – the snowman is still taking this tree home despite the weather!
I decided it needed a frame, so I used die-cut a frame using some stithced rectangle dies, then ink blended with Distress Inks to match the background.
I quite enjoyed using the variety of medium to create this card and will definitely have a play again.
I hope you can come and join us in our challenge – I look forward to seeing you there. xx
