Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
This week the challenge is
Create Something Beginning With The Letter 'N'
'N' is for Naughty or Nice, Nautical, Navy, New, November, Neutral, whatever you can think of! We will be looking forward to seeing what 'N' you use for your crafty project!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I used Night and Navy for my inspiration and made a Christmas Card and Tag ;-)
On my recent visit to the Simon Says Stamp Store I bought these lovely Woodlands Thinlits Dies from Tim Holtz. I coloured some Watercolor Paper with Forest Moss and Evergreen Bough Distress inks and then die cut them. For the tree I popped the little pieces back into the tree and for the tag I left them out. I love how different the trees look using these different techniques.
I inked the backgrounds using Stormy Sky and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks and then smothered with Micro Glaze before making the snow using a Falling Snow Stencil and some White Embossing Paste. The Micro Glaze creates a barrier and prevents the paste reacting with the ink so that the snow remains white.
I added some Prima Glitter to the branches and I also used the small star in a Festive Scribbles Die Set, I used Pumice Stone Distress Glitter for added sparkle.
For the tag I used the same techniques and inked the Crinkle Ribbon with the same colour stains.
So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
