Good afternoon my lovelies I hope you aere enjoying all the Christmas makes for our DT. Girls you are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
I have to say it was a rocky start for me this release I honestly didn’t think I would be able take put or I would only be able to do a couple of cards so I was really pleased to get my 7 yes seven little beauties ready.
I also treated myself to the stamp set (Ssssshhhhhh don’t tell Hubster hehehe) so I’m having a play these too with my tim holtz/tonic stamp station OMG it’s a dream I love it the images are so crisp LOVE IT!!!
AnyHOOOOOO back to the card I made a Kraft card blank using 2 sheets of A4 kraft card then added Kraft to the back of all my papers I was trying to give it a vintagey feeling but still colourful and pretty.
I distressed the papers tearing in some places and inked with oxide inks (I love these they’re sooooo blendable.
The image Called Winnie and Pengiun has been coloured with a mix of Pablo and Prisma pencils and then mounted onto Kraft card. I then added iced diamond and snow dust to the floor to give the effect of freshly fallen snow. I also masked off the image and went around it with oxide inks to create the background again in doing this these seem more blendable than the normal distress inks.
For the embellishments I took one of the word arts from the set and added clear embossing powder I did this a couple of times to give a good coverage, then I cut out the flower and leaves from the foliage section again I clear embossed the top sections of these then cut into some of the petal to give a more 3D effect then added a flat backed stone. To finish the look I added frontage and splatters of paint to the card.
The final step was the insert and that was done in my usual way (but a little differently) instead of brightening the inner paper and the fading it I just faded the edges letting it merge into the paper behind then added the uncoloured image and a verse from the sentiment section.
Hope you like it and I will see you again very soon as I think I now have the Christmas bug lol
