Morning, For this project I used quite a lot of the stamps that Leonie launched on Hochanda alongside the beautiful Sparkle pens. It took quite a lot of masking but I think it was well worth it. The Christmas Tree elements are excellent and can be used to make much more than just a tree.
I planned where the tree was going to sit on my card and first stamped the tree lights, then masked them with Pebeo Drawing gum. Next I moved to the presents and lastly the tree, masking as I went.
I stamped the sentiment in the corner and while the drawing gum was still in place I added the colour using the Cobalt and Arctic to blend around the card from my mat, (it does stain your smoothie) Then I removed the drawing gum.
Apart from the presents, I used the pens without any additives. I wanted the full sparkle for this card. It didn't disappoint, the sparkle effect is out of this word.
To finish the card, I backed it onto Silver Mirri card and then onto a black card base.
Thank you so much for your visit today, I hope you have enjoyed the step by step I have shared and the finished card. I would love to hear how you are getting on with your sparkle pens if you were lucky enough to get them. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
