Good morning my lovelies, today's share is a wintery themed card using the beautiful new Tangled Birch stamp from Chocolate Baroque. This is such a detailed stamp and so versatile, I thought it would be a good opportunity to start my Christmas cards. Have you started yours yet?
I began by stamping the focal image on some stamping card and dusting distress ink (Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade) over with a shaving brush before distressing with Iced Spruce ink. I splashed the background with some water and blotted with some kitchen towel to create a snowy effect. I stamped the image on acetate with versamark, extending the land a little with a versamark pen and embossed with a silver embossing powder. I layered this over the background, attaching with a couple of silver eyelets. and added some glitter to the moon using a Zig glue pen.
To make the background I used the same colours of distress ink and dusted them over a larger piece of card, trying to follow through the colours from the topper. The snowflakes are from Reindeer Landscape, stamped with Iced Spruce distress ink and then I've added dots of glue and sprinkled with glamour dust.
I've used some silver card from my stash to mat and layer the image and the background and added a silver bow to finish off.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: N for no rules
Craft Rocket: anything goes
Crafty Boots: Christmas
Inky Chicks: Christmas in summer
Moving along with the times: no designer papers
Sisterhood of Crafters: make your own background
Sparkles Forum Christmas: Snowflakes
