Winter is quickly approaching…at times it feels as if you’re looking at the world through the shroud of dingy grey gauze. The real beauty of winter can also be seen in the grey twilight when the pines have been darkened by an evening snowfall cutting you off from the worries of the outside world. This is what I look forward to in the coming months. I tried to capture that feeling in this Christmas card I’ve made for you today.
Time: 30 minutes
Pounce Grey Flannel and London Fog Memento Ink onto the craft mat. Pounce a bit of Niagara Mist VersaMagic ink as well.
Spritz a bit of Ink Potion No.9 over the inks. Tap the mixture a bit to mix it up and eliminate some of the harsh lines.
Press a white cardstock panel into the ink mixture several times until you are satisfied with the results.
Stamp pine trees onto the inked panel using VersaFine Clair Morning Mist ink.
Randomly dot Radiant Neon Amplify in White over the panel.
Heat the Amplify medium to activate and puff it up.
Trim and mat on black cardstock then adhere the panel to a grey card base. Stamp off the excess ink on the pine tree stamp on the inside of the card to create a ghostly grey pine forest. Add a bit of line work around the edge of the card to finish it off.
Stamp sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock. Trim and adhere to the card front.
