Good morning everyone, hope you are all safe and well after last night’s horrendous winds … my husband is currently out in the back garden inspecting some smashed fence panels !!
The weekend is here again, so it's time for another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Brenda has chosen the theme and it is
Anything Goes with a Hand Stamped or Digital Image
So we just need to see any image as the focal point of your project this week … pretty easy we hope 😀
This week we have 2 gorgeous prizes on offer:
2 Bee Crafty Border stamps
is offering 3 images of the winner's choice.
My card this week allowed me to play with my new Lavinia Christmas stamps and masks the same day as they arrived, so it is a bit of an experiment, but I’m very pleased with how it turned out.
I used my new hill masks to blend inks for my hills, then a circle mask to create my moon and sky with Distress Oxides. I stamped my reindeer and trees using various shades of Versafine and Versafine Clair to give a bit of dimension, and using a mask to create the small trees in the background from the top of my small fairy fir. I used my circle mask negative to stamp my wording over the moon, stamped some berries round the edges and a sentiment, and highlighted the moon and trees with my Sparkle pen. Finally I spattered the whole panel with white acrylic paint to create snowflakes. It was my first time trying spattering with white acrylic paint and it wasn’t altogether successful … pretty uncontrolled and VERY messy .. now thinking about getting a Posca pen to try 😀
