Well dare I mention the "C" word in July???? - Of course I do!!!!! I've been inspired to create this card for the My Time to Craft challenge of "Christmas in July".
A lot of stamping involved in this one and all starting with a white piece of card.
Firstly I used the Inkylicious large bauble stencil (which comes with an inney and an outey stencil). I used the inney stencil and blended some distress ink around it so that I knew where I was going and dropped the stencil down a bit to make the bauble a bit larger than it actually is. Then I stamped the wood cabin stamp (again from Inkylicious) within the bauble and blended the ink with an almost dry paint brush. Next came an Inkylicious hills and valleys stencil and I brushed some distress ink from the stencil and gave the cabin some hills behind it and in front of it so starting to make a scene.
A small moon mask was added and ink blended around it to get the nice white moon.
Some small trees were then stamped both inside the bauble and out so that the scene spread wider than the bauble.
The sentiment "Merry Christmas" was stamped in versa fine ink for a nice crisp finish. I die cut some white snowflakes and used the aperture from the die cuts to sponge some snowflakes directly on to the edge of the background with white color box ink.
Added a small stamped family and a couple of small birds from Card-io and then with a fine liner pen just outlined the bottom half of the bauble so you didn't lose sight of it and sprayed the whole image with Goosebumps texture shimmer spray to give the whole card a shiny, bumpy snowy effect.
Quite different I thought? Happy with that, a beautiful wintry scene card.
I would like to enter this card in to the My Time To Craft challenge "Christmas in July"
