We have a great new topic today at Try It On Tuesday! You can choose which way you want to go, or choose both together - it's Fire and Ice and the Design Team have some amazing examples to see here! There are also a few rules so do take a look!
I made a Christmas card (as you do in January!)
As you can see I voted for mainly ice but as I am craving some sunshine with all the grey skies we are getting I added a corner of one of my favourite stamps!
The coloured parts of my Winter Greenery were cut from a large piece of card I had been testing my (very old) Distress Stains. Most of them have turned out almost the same colour! As you can see I sprinkled some water over them to get a variation in colour.
I put some Distress Oxides and Distress Ink on my mat and spritzed them.
After running the card through them and then a bit of drying and dabbing I added some silver acrylic paint with some rolled up paper towel.
I didn't want too much showing through.
After cutting out some white 'greenery' I stamped the stag on the card and arranged the undergrowth.
He is from one of the first Sheena Douglas sets I ever bought.
I added some stickles to the greenery.
It was at this point I just had to add that sunshine - it was such a grey day when I made this card!
I would like to enter my card at:-
ABC Christmas Challenge - Letter A is for Antlers
That's Crafty - Feeling Blue Challenge
Looking forward to seeing which you choose!
Thanks for looking, Chris
