Hello crafty friends, today wanna share another Christmas card with you at Joy Clair blog. I am using the one of the new release stamps, Merry Christmoose Clear Stamp. This stamp set is super adorable!
I created the background with my Tombow Dual Brush pens. I scribbles the red, yellow and blue on a piece of clear acetate and sprayed with some water. Then I dipped my watercolor paper in it. Gently I moved my fingers on it to make sure the surface of the card would be covered evenly with the colors.
Then I lifted up from the plastic acetate, and I used paper towel to remove some of the colors on the edges. I dried it with my craft heater because I did not want to wait 😀 But also drying with craft heater will make sure that my watercolored panel is dry well before stamping.
Next step is I stamped the tress on the panel, one is bit lower and other bit higher becuase I wanted to add some snowy hills on the card. I stamped the images with Versafine Ink Pad with MISTI couple times to give extra bold and dark for the silhouette effect. I stamped the sentiment also with the same ink and did it couple times. And then I heat set the stamped image again with my craft heater.
I added some snow on the trees with Uniball Signo White Gel Pen. Randomly I added some snow on the branches, imaging the snow will fall and sit on the branches. Then I decided to add some extra snow on the background with some white paint splatters using toothbrush and big round paint brush for bigger drops.
For the snowy hills, I cut out white cardstock shape like small hills and then using a make up sponge, I added some Broken China Distress Ink on them. Lighter on the middle and darker on the edges. Then I added them on the card with 3d foam tape.
My card is done 🙂 I hope this will inspire you to create more Holiday handmade cards to share the joy with your friends and family.
