Good morning folks, I think I blinked and missed the weekend as its Monday already. I'm not too grumpy though as its our staff party today so we get to down tools at lunchtime and relax with a nice buffet and some Christmas music. Anyway before the festivities, I just wanted to share a card made for a couple of challenges:
I love to make a card from just white card, its sooooooo satisfying isn't it? this card is made just from one sheet of white card and a chipped sapphire distress ink pad (and of course loads of Clarity Stamps). I saw this months challenge at Clarity was scene building and had decided to try and play along and when I spotted the challenge at Craft a Scene was to make a winter scene with an optional extra of making a tri-shutter card I had to have a go.
The folding lark was the most complicated, eeeeeeeek! I'm totally useless at measuring and folding lol. I began by creating the card base and then set to with my Clarity Stamps to create the wintery scene. the scene didn't look right extending in to the bottom of the card so I used a shaving brush and more Chipped Sapphire ink to create the blue border and added some snow with a white sharpie pen.
Here are a couple more pics:
I wasn't too sure about the tree at the top but they kind of look like dark hills in the background (hopefully lol)
