It’s taken a few weeks to get back into some sort of cardmaking routine since returning from holiday. Here is my first challenge card this month to be entered into the current Time Out Challenge #144.Continue reading
Long time no blog…I believe it’s time to publish another post.
I am starting to get into the swing of Xmas cards now and this one turned out great for me. I used the Mama Elephant ‘Me and My Yeti’ and ‘Yeti Sentiments’ stamp sets as well as Hero Arts ‘Winter Scene’ for the background trees and Impression Obsession Christmas Tree dies for the foreground. Those trees were diecut out of Resene Paints paint chips.
The background is simply ink blended with Ranger Distress Oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio and Broken China and then stamped trees with three green oxide inks (Lucky Clover, Twisted Ciron and Peeled Paint).
A new product I tried today was Liquitex Glass Beads Texture Gel. Its a transparent gel that you can also colour with paint, mixed with other mediums or paint directly over the top to achieve different looks. I just used it straight out of the tub and think it gives an icy look rather than an opaque white for snow. The hills were diecut with My Favorite Things ‘Surf and Turf’ die set. All the images were simply copic coloured.
Hope you enjoyed it and have a great day.
