Don’t know about you but the festive season is creeping up fast!! No cards made, but trying to get into the spirit of things, I decided to create a scene on an mdf Artboard… you could do something similar on a card using paint instead of texture paste…
First mask off the bit that slots into the base of the Artboard so that it fits later… I use washi
tape. Using collage gel, glue old book pages to the Artboard. Add some wordy circles from the Dina Wakley collage papers.. And finish with a layer of collage gel.
Next add some texture paste using the Trees Frame 6x6 (the inner bit) .. leave to dry.
When dry use Versafine & stamp part of the large snowflake boarder in between the trees… (in hindsight I should’ve done this before I used the texture paste) then emboss in white…
When cool start adding some colour with Ecoline Brush Pens, I used blues & blue-greens. Blend as you add each colour & then splatter with water & leave to dry…
When dry, wipe the Artboard with an anti static bag. Then stamp the words “Baby It’s Cold Outside “ in Versafine Clair Nocturne & emboss with clear powder. I also stamped some of the individual snowflakes in Unicorn White..
Paint some snowflake’s from a PopOut sheet in white (use shimmery/ glittery paint if you have any)..
Remove the washi tape & slot the Artboard into its base. Paint in white gesso, add some texture paste & sprinkle with fake snow & sequins…
Add the Pop Out snowflake’s & some glitter/flakes/sparkle/Sequins to the trees.. a few sparkles in the background & done ..
Thanks for stopping by… Ann x
