I'm back with my fortnightly midnight post which means there's a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. And so, following our usual sequence of challenges, this week we are back with our regular challenge which is...
Addicted to Holidays
Please ensure your creation relates to a holiday/vacation theme or a holiday
such as Christmas, Easter, or any other national holiday.
Our sponsor this week is Stamplorations who are offering a fab prize of a $10 gift certificate.
For my DT card this week I've gone with Christmas and yes, you've guessed it, I've been masking and blending inks again! I hope I'm not boring you with these very similar cards this last week but I love how this one turned out.
I masked a vertical panel on my card base and also die cut a small circle to create a mask for the moon. I hand cut a mask from a post-it to create the snow banks and blended Distress Inks, starting at the top, working my way down just adding a little of the blue to create the snow drifts in the three lower sections. I put the lower mask back in place to stamp the tree in black. Once all the masks were removed I stamped the sentiment, also in black.
