Hello lovelies! How are you? Hope you are well! And a happy 4th July to any visitors from across the pond! I'm feeling a little free-er since I had my last Rainbows for the summer last night - won't really be finished until after our daycamp on the 13th July though. But still - I don't have to worry about planning and all that until September now - so thats all good!
Today I want to show you the first card I've made using Sheena's new Christmas stamps - I've bought most of them so there's more to come - but I need to make them first - I am a bit of a Sheena addict! - the first is the cottage that comes in a set with the sentiment I've used and also the snow stamp that I've used!
The image was stamped first then I painted it with cosmic shimmer watercolourpaints and after drying masked it off to create the sky. I used a wash of faded jeans and pumice stone DI splodged onto my craft mat and worked with water from a paint brush. After drying and a quick rub over with the old antistatic bag I set about covering the image with snow by stamping with versamark and adding white WOW sparkling snow embossing powder before heat setting. Once it was all done I cut out the image using a spellbinders die and backed with green card. The sentiment was stamped and distressed. The background was made using festive berries and forest moss and another green DI. The red and the green were sneared together on my card then I added the forest moss through an imagination crafts stencil. Then I stamped all over using teadye and one of the industrial backgrounds from LOTV. I then used further teadye around the edges then added the ribbon. The poinsettia was made from MCS diecutsand the charm is from the Ribbon Girl.
I really enjoyed making this one - lots of inky fun!
