We're just now approaching the time of year when I wake up to the fact that I am woefully behind on the Christmas card making front, so I am resolved to get a wriggle on and need to start making several each week from now on.
Today I would like to share my first card using a new set of Visible Image stamps. I have wanted an image of Santa and his sleigh driving across the night sky for a long time, and finally I have got one!
I stamped my rows of rooftops with various colours of Versafine Clair, then created my night sky with Distress Oxide inks and a circle mask. I stamped my sleigh and sentiment, highlighted it and my skyline windows with Sakura sparkle pen, then created some snowflakes with Posca pen spatters. I matted everything onto black and then silver card and attached to my card base - job done!! This was actually a pretty simple card, though the positioning of the skyline was quite tricky, even with my stamp positioning tool.
Here is an angled pic to show the sparkle of the moon reflection and the windows.
Stamps: Visible Image Christmas Eve; sentiment - Uniko Festive Sentiments;
Media: Distress Oxide inks (Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet); Versafine Clair (Nocturne, Medieval Blue, Morning Mist); Sakura Stardust pen (gold, clear); Posca pen (white).
