Yes, yes, it’s time for another sneak peek from Artistic Outpost! This is another card made with "Snowy Woods," one of the sets being released October 1! I’m having so much fun with these new stamp plates…
Stamps: Snowy Woods (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: green and burgundy (Core’dinations), watercolor paper, Frost (Memory Box)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Walnut Stain (Tim Holtz Distress Ink)
Accessories: Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, bending stump, sponge for distressing, Spica gold glitter pen, glittery flowers and gold foil leaf (Prima), rhinestone brad (Stampin’ Up!), distressing tool (Stampin’ Up!)
The Santa image and words were stamped with Palette Burnt Umber, and the Santa was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol (mineral spirits) and a blending stump. The Core’dinations card stock was sanded to distress it and remove the "shine" and then antiqued with Walnut ink and a sponge.
The patterned paper was antiqued with the Walnut ink as well, after the edges were distressed with a distressing tool (Stampin’ Up!).
I added a little "bling" to this card with the Prima Poinsettias I purchased last year, and used a rhinestone brad for the center. I mounted it with foam dimensional tape. A little extra "gold" was added with a Copic gold Spica pen…love using these…the ink flows so nicely…outlined the Santa a bit…
