Ink It! Stamp It! - Holiday Catalogue

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome back everyone 😊
And welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. 
This month we will be sharing projects inspired by our projects created using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. 
The full line up below will guide through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite item is from the new catalogue.

I chose to use 2 stamp set called 'Snowflake Sentiments' and the 'Merry Little Labels' for my card today along with a couple of techniques to create my card with. 
One technique is water colour washing, this was combined with another technique, called resist emboss. I also used a masking technique to stamp the silhouette images at the bottom of the card.

Seasons Greetings

Basic Instructions.
To start my scene, I taped up around the edge piece of a piece of water colour paper. 
I then wet the paper with a large brush. 
I applied my colours, with the card stock wet the colour travels and blends without leaving any harsh lines.
I heat dried the first  layer of colours.
 Once done, I embossed the snowflakes in white embossing powder and repeated the water colour wash over the top to strengthen the colours, making them more vibrant. 
I left this to dry naturally.

When this was completely dry, I stamped my images by repeat stamping a stamp fro the 'Merry Little Labels' set. 
I then used my black Stampin' Write marker to fill in some areas with larger silhouettes of pine tree shapes.

I used my versamark re-fill and a small brush to apply versamark to the tree line and some ground area, dusting this with white embossing powder and then heating until smooth.
This gave the effect of snow coverage on the trees.
 When the scene was complete I trimmed it down to size and backed it onto basic black card stock.

The sentiment has also been embossed using the white embossing powder then trimmed to a banner and glued in place.

Well, what do you think?

Me I really like the effect, and that sweet little deer silhouette just makes it 😊
