Hi, I was inspired to make a one layer card with lots of the cute critters from the Winter Woodland Wonders stamp set by Avery Elle. There is also a coordinating video tutorial for this card which you can watch HERE. I created masks for all the critters and used an acrylic block to stamp all the images. I stamped the critters that I wanted to be at the very front first. Placed the mask down and stamped the next critter. Once all my stamping was done and all my masks are in place I can add some colour to the background. I am working on Bristol card so the Distress Oxides will glide and blend easily on this card.
I worked on my Ranger craft mat and covered the whole background with Peacock Feathers and added Seedless Preserves to the top third of the card. I had to be careful around the masking to make sure that the blending tool wouldn’t move any of the masks. Before I removed the masks I spritzed some water from the Distress Sprayer onto the background and blotted it dry with a paper towel.
I used the Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers to colour all the images. The colours I used are listed on the video and will be with the supply list below. I tried not to have the same colour of scarf next to each other. I wanted to add some sparkle to this card so I ‘drew’ with the Crystal Glaze along the ground, their noses, hats and ears and poured on some Pure Sheen glitter. I tapped off the excess onto a piece of paper so I can easily funnel it back into the jar. I added some dots of Crystal Glaze to the sky to act as snowflakes and covered these with glitter too. I placed this aside to dry overnight then adhered it to a card base.
I have spent a lot of time on this card, so I placed it in the stamp platform to stamp the sentiment.
What do you think of this card? Do you like the added glitter?
