Now let's talk about my card! I only used one stamp set to create this beautiful snowy scene!
I started with an 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" panel of Bristol smooth card stock. I created an ink blended night sky using Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet and Milled Lavender Distress inks.
Then, I splattered the panel with water and dabbed it off after drying for a few seconds. I also splattered the background with Copic Opaque White ink mixed with water to create the look of falling snow.
Next, I cut some white hills for my scene out of the same Bristol card stock. I wanted to give them a little depth, so I colored the top edges of them with Copic markers. I used BG000 and BG0000.
I felt like the hills needed a bit more. I found Crushed Ice paste in my stash, and applied it to the top of the hills. The glitter paste really transformed them into glistening snowy hills, it was the perfect addition!
I also silver heat embossed one of the sentiments from the new "English Winter Village" 6x8 stamp set. I used it's coordinating die to cut it out.
Next, I stamped the sleigh and one of the small houses from the same English Winter Village stamp set. I stamped them onto Bristol with VersaFine Clair Morning Mist ink. I felt the gray ink was a little less jarring than black. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color them in.
Once they were all colored, I cut them out with the coordinating English Winter Village dies.
Now let's build a card! I did go ahead and splatter the stamped images with white ink so they'd fit in with the back ground.
I put foam tape behind the top part of the sleigh image. The texture paste made it a bit too bumpy on the bottom to glue it flat against the hill.
I cut several small snowflakes from the Snowflake Spinner add on dies. I glued them over the panel and added silver gems from the Festive Gems mix to the centers of each snowflake.
The final step was to glue the whole panel onto an 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" card base.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
