Rachelle Anne Miller Art has a wonderful new Christmas release and today my card features 'Holiday Birds' one of several darling new digital stamps.
I received the stamp in an email and I downloaded it to my computer and then sent it to print on my home printer which I'd loaded with a sheet of Copic friendly cardstock. I increased the size by 10% to fit a mini slim format. I also loaded a panel of masking paper into the printer and again printed it off. I fussy cut that image out and layered it over the main image and then I ink blended using Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. The mask was removed.
I coloured the birds and lights with Copic markers and a limited colour palette and highlighted points with a white gel pen. I used acrylic paint and a stylus to dot in the snow and a white gel pen for the four point stars.
Finally I used Versamark Ink to stamp the sentiment from Hello Bluebird Stamps on to a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed in white. This was applied with foam tape and the whole decorative panel was glued to a mini slim cardstock base. Another Christmas card completed!
Thanks for joining me on my blog today - happy crafty time!
