Happy Holidays Series | ft. Lawn Fawn "Here We Go A-Waddling"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
This card was inspired by a Muse Challenge that I had entered a few weeks back. I was very inspired by the sketch and jotted it down, so when it came time to make some Christmas cards and I looked at my book, this card was born.
To begin, I masked off the top and bottom to create a slash where my colour would be. I then sponged on Tumbled Glass Distress ink to give it a very light look. I waited for that to dry and heat embossed the music notes from the set with clear embossing powder.
I then stamped out the caroling penguins with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with Copics, then popped them up on some foam tape.
To make the slash of colour get progressively darker I added Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress inks with a heavier hand the higher up I got.
Finally I stamped the greeting from the same set with CTMH Archival ink. I chose this ink just in case my Distress ink wasn't completely dry. Archival ink is waterproof and won't run over the (almost dry) Distress ink.
I mounted everything on the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
