52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT20-19 – May 25th – Technique: Eraser

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 (herehere and 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.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 510 – 18th of April – Recipe

For our CRAFT challenge this week, Jo is inviting everyone to design a card based on a recipe. It must include an image, 2 ribbons, and 3 patterned papers. This challenge was especially fun as I used papers designed by our own Design Team Leader, Jo at Trimgym’s Digistamps, Papers and Images.  For my image, I used a cute mouse and snowflake by Penny Black that I coloured with my Copics.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – 52CCT7-19 – Theme – Winter Trees

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.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT-32-18 Punny Holiday

DT Badge

The week the Design Team at 52CCT is looking for a punny holiday/funny holiday card. I have used this stamp in the past, but I just love Penny Black’s Snowy the snowman, and if you add a dog you get an extra bonus. I coloured the image with Copic markers. I cut out each scene using MFT stitched squares/rectangles. The sentiment is from SSS.
