This week we at 52 CCTC
are trying a whole new technique to me. It is called Eraser Technique. For examples of this technique and the instruction check out the Eraser technique (here
). So I started with a blank A2 card and MFT’s Snow Flurry Stencil. I secured the stencil on my craft matt using masking tape. Next, I took a piece of sandpaper and brushed an HB pencil across it making lead dust. I used a clean distress ink sponge tool by Tim Holtz and picked up the dustings and ran the tool across the stencil leaving leaded snowflakes across the card. I stamped Penny Black’s, Snowy on the card. I then erased any snowflakes that showed on the stamped area. The final step was to colour the little snowman with Tombow markers in grey tones. The only colour I used was on his cheeks. The sentiment is from SSS.

This week at CHNCC the theme is to use some silver. I made a very simple card. I used a die by Memory Box called Dazzling Snowflake. It cuts a negative snowflake, and I backed it in silver foil paper. The joy sentiment is by SSS. While it is not apparently the white cardstock is actually pearlized and quite pretty.
Join us each week for another fun Christmas challenge.
This week’s 52 Christmas Card Challenge Throwdown
is Choral. For my card, I started by downloading Free Printable music sheets (I did a Google search). Once downloaded, I printed them to fit an A2 card. Next I distressed the music using Distress Ink. I decided to cut the sheet down further, curl the edges and mount them offset on the page. I added a little choir boy Digi stamp from Pure Innocent. I coloured him with Copic markers. For my final touch I added a few sequins.
