Our challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is a sketch challenge Here is the sketch...
Since Christmas will be here again before we know it, I opted to make a Christmas card...
Stamps: Cool Santa, Lamp Post
Paper:Signature Christmas (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Prima Flowers, Charm, Grunge board, acrylic paint, Stickles, Fun Flock, Glitter
I wanted Santa to have a shabby appearance like the paper. I used distress ink with lots of blending of pumice stone.I added some Fun Flock to his coat, and flock and glitter to the base for some glittery snow.
I blended a couple of flower types for this shabby Christmas flower and added a charm.
I did quite a bit to the grungeboard to get this effect. I started with Aged Mahogany distress ink, covered with acrylic paint (which pulled the color of the distress ink), stamped with the Weathered Background stamp, darkened the edges with with Walnut distress ink, and finally went over it one more time with Aged Mahogany.
I am entering this in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Christmas in May.
To all my USA visitors, I hope you have a fabulous and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
Thanks for stopping by today!
