Hi peeps! Hope you're all having a good day! Just popping by to share a couple of festive cards with you. Both cards use very different techniques, but are fun to make.
On the top card I've used a piece of cheap glossy photopaper (ideal for this job) for the image, firstly applying drops of Alcohol Blending Solution here and there, then adding drops of two different shades of Alcohol Inks - one colour over the sky area, another for the houses (leaving some white showing through for a "snowy" effect). I added more drops of Blending Solution and moved the card around, so the inks dribbled and swirled! (Oooh I do love playing with Alcohol inks)!! The stamp is from the Elusive Images "Snow is Falling" set - this was stamped onto the inked paper with black Memento. The image was then trimmed and layered onto silver mirri card. I picked out some of the snow on the roof-tops with white gel pen. The greeting has been done on the computer, punched out with the SU oval scallop punch and the edges inked. Finished off with a tree charm.
The second card was very quick and easy to make, using the CB Holly embossing folder on cream card, and embossing a couple of lines beneath the image using a Score Board. I've applied pale blue chalk on the Holly leaves to tone in with the Bazzill base card, and added Glamour Dust here and there (which does not show up on the photo). Finished off with a Papermania greeting stamp and cream ribbon.
Thanks for looking - Hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxx
