I do hope that you're all keeping well and happy.
It's time for a new challenge over at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'One Layer Christmas Cards.' Now I now that the thought of creating something with one layer fills some people with dread but I have to say that I've thoroughly enjoyed making this Christmas card.
I started by stamping the base of the Inkylicious snow globe with Distress Walnut stain and painting it with Distress Tea Stain before adding the circular stencil to enable me to create the globe itself. Once I was happy that the stencil was in the right place, I used my Ink Dusters and also a sponge dauber to give it a little more detail around the edge. The ink I used to do this with was Blueprint Sketch.
With the globe all finished, it was then time to stamp my Crafty Individuals Robin in place and give him some colour using some water colour pencils.
I created the border of my card using some lovely stamps that came free with the Creative Stamper magazine last year. I've used these stamps so many times and I have to say that I love them. The colours that I've used to stamp with are Impress Olive Green and the Walnut Stain. The red bow and berries were made using Adirondack Cranberry.
With my card almost finished now, I added my sentiment and some iridescent glitter to the base of the dome to give the impression of snow sparkling. As this is a one layer card, I drew a fine black line using a Sharpie pen around the edge of my finished card to give the impression that the card had been mounted.
That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x
