Hi everyone, it´s Chris, back with a Christmas card. Since I saw the Campsite scene Die I had this little scene in my mind. So I decided to make this card for my today’s blog post.
For this card I used:
As always I started to stamped all images on alcohol friendly paper and colored them with my alcohol markers, color pencils and a white pen for highlights.
After this I stamped the skaters again with the „mirror stamping technique“. I love to use this technique, because the technique doesn’t have to be perfect – it‘s just a reflection. If you like some more information about this technique you can find here a blog post I made a “few” days ago. I colored up the mirrored images with the same colors as I did before, the only thing I did was to use a light blue ( Copic BG10) on my last step to cover up the skaters.
Then I did some ink blending with Distress oxide inks (tumbled glass and / or peacock feathers) – to get a „smoother“ look you can use a panel of vellum. For the sky I also used Distress oxide ink (uncharted mariner) and drew some white snowflakes with a pen.
When everything was colored and cut out I only had to add the scenery on my card base. That’s it.
Thank you for stopping by,
happy crafty time
Oh this is top of the Christmas card list, so adorable. You are gifted.
