Poppystamps: Merry and Bright

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Poppystamps blog today, sharing a card, boasting a colorful winter background, created with Distress Inks.
I started this card by inking a piece of white cardstock, from bottom to top, with Spun Sugar, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, and Faded Jeans Distress Inks, blending each layer of color into the next.  I then grounded the colors with die-cut, from more white cardstock, Stitched Hills.  The "may your days be MERRY and BRIGHT" sentiment was white-embossed just above those hills, near the right edge of the prepped piece...
before creating the rest of the winter scene.  The Trim Tree and Prancing Deer were die-cut from Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar cardstocks respectively; and one of the deer was dressed up with a simple, red, gemstone nose.
I then splattered everything with Titanium White acrylic paint and couldn't resist covering those snowy hills in glitter.  Once everything was dry, I anchored the entire piece, to a white, cardstock, card face, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching and wrapped up its top edge with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow.
I'll be back tomorrow with a simple Thursday Tip for Pretty Little Studio.  Until then, thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Be blessed!
