A new card today for Rachelle Anne Miller Digital Stamps featuring one of my favourite images called Christmas Sled.
To kick this one off I first used a pale grey ink and I stamped a pretty tree image from my stash by Lesia Zgharda and available from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the subtle background and then used Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink to softly ink blend the panel creating a subtle focal point.
This panel was die cut using a deckle edge die set by Honey Bee Stamps. The panel was backed with white craft foam and applied to an A2 card base.
I printed off the digital stamp using Copic friendly cardstock and my home printer. I coloured the images using Copic markers, here is my colour palette:-
Skin - E11, E21, E000
Reds - R39, R29, R24, R22, W4, W3
Greys - W7, W5, W4, W2, W1
Minty Greens - BG0000, G000, G00, W2
Bunny - T2, T1, T0
I then carefully fussy cut each component carefully and this allowed me to rearrange the elements slightly. They were backed with foam tape and applied to the scene.
Next, I used white acrylic paint and a stylus to dot in snow including over the characters so that it looked authentic.
Finally, I die cut the word 'noel' 5 times from white cardstock using a Hello Bluebird die. I adhered each die cut to the next forming a nice dimensional stack which I then glued to the scene. Underneath it I adding the season's greetings smaller sentiment using red ink to pick up the red from the characters.
A few sparkling clear sequins completed the card.
