I decided to go with a Winter theme thereby adding another Christmas card to the pile. I had great fun making this. I used a Clarity moon mask and tore paper to cover the bottom of my card. I added distress ink from the top of my card fading out as it got near the land area. I removed the moon mask then stamped the trees, firstly with an old, rather dried up black archival ink pad, then again with a new black archival ink pad.
I then worked on the bottom area, firstly stamping the three deer in place, using a mask so their feet would appear to be in the snow. Then I added ridges and shadow using the palest blue distress ink pad (I think it was stormy sky). Finally, using a glue pen I dotted snow in the sky and using fine white glitter, I then edged the ridges with the glue pen and added glitter all along the ridges. Finally, I dusted lightly around the edges of the card with blue distress ink then matted onto black cardstock.
So that's another Christmas card to add to the pile (not a very big pile I hasten to add).
I live in a beautiful area of North Wales, up in the hills but not too far from civilisation! We run a busy boarding Cattery. I answer the phone and do a little administration. My passion is paper crafting which I have been doing for the past ten years or so. I love getting inky and messy with paints. Nothing better than starting with a clean sheet of card and creating everything yourself. I like to keep my hands busy so when not paper crafting I also knit, crochet, sew, make jewellery, in fact anything that keeps my hands busy. I also enjoy reading.
