Those Who Don't Believe In Magic................
Well, I'm getting in to that Christmas spirit early!!!!
This is a card that I have prepared for the current Lavinia Stamp challenge of "Let it snow".
Now, I have to admit, I got so engrossed when I was making this that I actually forgot to take photo's along the way!! - I did remember but when I did, it was a bit too late!!!! So, although we can't take our usual journey, I can talk you through how I got there.
I started with my usual piece of Sheena stamping card and gave it a coat of gesso.
I then die cut the snowflakes and different flourishes (these are all Sue Wilson and Courture Creations dies). They were then stuck on to the gesso'd card and another coat of gesso was applied over the top.
A small moon mask was stuck down.
Out came my aquatints and I have used a shade of light pink and light blue on this one and when dry I've applied a light covering of silver gilding wax to bring those images right out. The moon mask was then removed.
All the stamps (trees and stag) are Lavinia Stamps. I stamped the stag in black versa fine ink and clear embossed him to set. I then stamped all the other trees. The sentiment was stamped on (also Lavinia Stamps) and I applied Cosmic Shimmer glacier ice and diamond sprinkles on the trees and around the ground and some for falling snow too.
How pretty is that?!!! Rather mixed media this one - quite different with Lavinia stamps I thought with quite a lot of depth to it -
I would like to enter this card in to the current Lavinia Stamps challenge "Let it snow":-
