Allison from the 52CCC Design Team has chosen Winter Trees as the Theme Challenge this month. I used a new stamp from Penny Black called, Snowy Village 40-558. I started by stamping the image using MFT Black ink. Next, I coloured the building with Copic markers. Using blue toned Oxide Distress Inks I sponged the background. For the finishing touch, I flicked water droplets over the image to produce the oxide effect.
Please join us for our weekly Christmas Card Challenges!
This week’s challenge at 52CCC is a Colour Challenge. We are looking for a card with Green and Silver. Crafting friends of mine have started their own Canadian Crafting Company. Currently, their own uniquely designed dies are limited editions and are sold to friends and family only. I purchased a number of their dies and they are all fabulous. This one is simply called Celtic Christmas Tree. Note: The die is a wonderful large die fitting perfect on my A2 card.
Our theme this week is Silent Night. I have a wonderful paper with the music of Silent Night but in my messy craft room I was not successful in finding it…insert sad face! So I made do with what I could find. I used an older Hero Arts stamp called Snowing Village CG396. Using my Misti, I stamped the images several times to ensure I got a black sky. I coloured the houses using Copic markers and added glitter mist to the full card front. The sentiment is recycled from a Christmas card.
