Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps
This week I am sharing with you an 8x8inch Card that could be used as a Christmas or Winter Birthday card, I was inspired to use pale shades of ink for the background and bolder for the main image.
I love to use uncommon colours for my winter makes just to be a little different... blues with browns is one of my favourite combinations
For the background I used the 'Background Text' stamp from the 'Snow Words' stamp set which I stamped using 'Wheat' Versamagic Ink, I then stamped some 'Snowflakes' from the 'Snow Flake Flurry' stamp set using 'Aspen Mist' Versamagic Ink. I love the subtle look these pale inks give.
I stamped the gorgeous 'Beryl' from the 'FASHIONettes' collection using 'London Fog' Memento Ink and then coloured her using a mixture of my coloured pencils, I chose similar but bolder colours from the background to make her stand out. I drew over her eyes and eyelashes using an archival liner pen to make them pop
For the senitment I stamped 'Baby It's Cold Outside' from the 'Snow Words' stamp set, first using Aspen Mist and then I stamped again using 'Rich Cocoa' Memento Ink offset from the first to create a shadow effect.
I created the Flourishes using some diecuts and some snowflakes that i stamped onto pearlescent card using the Aspen Mist and Wheat inks from before. I cut the snowflakes out and layered them over the diecuts, adding gems for some bling.
I really love how this card has turned out, I may just have to make a few more for the festive season
