Morning, Today I have shared a Christmas card, I have made for my collection. It's a long DL card measuring 10 x 4''. I thought it would be nice to have a much wider area for the scene. Very excited to let you know that the lovely Leonie will be Launching her new collection on Hochanda On Wednesday 10th August, It's gong to be another one not to miss.
I took a sheet of Super Smooth card and taped it to my glass mat. On a sheet of copier paper, I cut an aperture for the card and secured in place with washi tape.
Next, I took some copier paper and ripped across it to form masks for my hills and mountains.
To build up the mountains and hills I used Shaded Lilac, blending through Faded Jeans and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink, to alter the tone of the mountains I added some Pumice Stone.
I stamped my sentiment in to the centre of the sky and added the crescent moon mask hugging the sentiment. I then took 3 sizes of fir tree. To left I added the largest in a group of three, using second and third generation ink. The medium size I added to the right, then I added two of the small trees. I then used the smallest tree and a mask to create some mini trees in the distance. I added a couple of Deer, the larger of the two slightly off the picture.
To blend the sky I used Shaded Lilac, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. I removed the moon mask, added some white flowersoft to the hills and trees as snow. I then took away the aperture I had made and cut down to leave a white boarder around the design.
Finally I backed the piece with black card leaving a 5 mm black boarder around the piece.
I really hope you have enjoyed my step by step today and the card I have shared with you. I do hope you will visit again very soon. I would like to share some exciting news of my own. I have been asked to join the Be Creative Design Team, which I have accepted. I am extremely excited about this and look forward to sharing some designs with you in the future.
