I want to share with you a card I made for my sister for her birthday. I think it's one of my favorite cards I have made in a long time. I hope she enjoys it. I had such fun making it!!!
I made the background by layering 3 different shades of blue on to the front of the card...using Neenah 85lb white paper. I love the 85 and the 100 lb Neenah paper for most of my projects.
Then I frosted the whole background with Wink of Stella clear. It gave the card a lovely, shimmery effect. I added some splatters of white acrylic paint for the snow.
The three children are a digital stamp from Mo's . I love her stamps!!!
They are painted with Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils. The pencils keep the printer ink from bleeding into the colors. That was always such a frustration to me. I had already invested a lot into watercolors and Tombow markers... but I couldn't stay away from the printer ink on my digi images and got black mixed up into my colors. I knew pencils would work but after trying a few, I just was not that happy with the results. These Polychromos were worth every penny, though!!! They blend together and look great... even with novices like me!!!
The street lamp is a cut from my Silhouette Cameo. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that machine. It would cost me a fortune to get all the images I can cut with my Cameo.
The trees are also a cut from my Cameo. I used 3 layers of Neenah paper, glued them together and frosted them by using "Bridal Veil" embossing powder.
When everything was set, I applied some pearl Embossing Paste around the feet of the children and then wrote the Happy Birthday with my new ZIG calligraphy pens. I think I will love these too!!!
I am entering this card into these challenges:
The snowflakes on the card are for the "FLUTTER"
Thank you for stopping in.
