Good morning folks, this week seems to have gone by in a blur but despite being busy at work, my washer breaking down and the fact that it doesn't seem to have stopped raining for weeks I'm just about ready for Christmas. In fact I managed to grab an hour in my craft room to make this card, featuring the 'Stamp of the Week' from Chocolate Baroque which is Tree Silhouette.
I love this stamp, its such a beautiful image and lends itself to all sorts of scenic cards. I thought I'd make one last Christmas card before I pack the Christmas stash away.
I began by stamping the main image on a square of white card with versamark and embossing with black embossing powder. Next I used a black sakura glaze pen to extend the scene beyond the stamped image. I masked the moon and used various shades of blue distress inks to create the sky, splashing with water and blotting to create a bit of a snowstorm effect.
The sentiment is also from Chocolate Baroque as is the snowflake stamp used for the background.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: anything with a sentiment
Card Mania: Snowflakes
Craft a Scene: winter scene
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge: anything Christmas goes
Crafts and Me: Winter wonderland:
Loves Rubber Stamps: Merry Christmas
Raise the Bar: Let it snow
Simon Says Stamp: Christmas
I hope you're getting organised for the big day. I'm waiting for the nice man from Tesco to deliver my food shopping and then I'm just about ready so once that little lot is put away the day is my own.
Thanks for popping by, have a lovely Sunday
