Its been a while! I just don't know where the time goes each month! Its really cold here at the moment, being by the coast we don't tend to get as much frost as other places but boy was that frost thick this morning!!! Its Christmas over at The Artistic Stamper and so I have used the new Christmas stamps from The Artistic Stamper
This is quite a quick and simple card, I used dark blue acrylic paint to paint a card i punched a piece of paper with a large circle punch and used that as a stencil and applied Picket Fence Distress Ink through the hole!
I then stamped the Santa stamp ensuring that he was onto of the white to create the illusion of him flying past the moon. I stamped some snowflakes in Picket Fence and heat dried them to set. I added the gorgeous new Merry Christmas stamp using Picket Fence Distress Ink and White embossing powder. I then went around the edge of the card with the picket fence pad being very random on how heavy i applied the ink and then added more embossing powder and heat set.
This months challenge starts today over on The Artistic Stamper Blog and Facebook pages, and this month the challenge is Autumn! I only have to look outside my windows to see the wonderful colours that autumn brings and used those colours.
Using Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick and Peeled Paint Distress Paint I stamped Lesley's Ivy stamp
I re-stamped the ivy onto a post it note and used this as a mask
Each time inking up the stamp with all four colours and occasionally just doing the odd image plain green.
I used to a water brush to pull the colour across - in other words no extra colour was used. I then stamped autumn in the space colours with the Decay alphabet stamps and then cut them out.
I also stamped some extra leaves and cut them out and added one under each letter. I added 3D pads to the letters to give it some depth.
Don't forget to add your challenge piece to the blog, you never know it could be you that wins the free stamps this month!
