optional twist: shaped winter/Christmas project
This month our sponsor is Frantic Stamper which is a great place to stock up on crafting supplies.
Here's my card
I've been wanting to make a card where I incorporate the Northern Lights into the design. One day, I hope to travel north to see the Northern Lights in person. I started with a white A2 card panel. I stamped the snowy hills and trees using Sunny Studio's Scenic Route stamp set, available at our sponsor, Frantic Stamper and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I also made a mask, by stamping the same image on a large post-it note, which I fussy cut out. I placed the mask in place and added color with distress inks (fossilized amber, aged mahogany, seedless preserves, mowed lawn, salty ocean) and ink blending tools, applied in a flicking upward motion. To add the "night sky", I applied black soot distress ink, mostly along the edges of the "sky". I trimmed the panel using a Waffle Flower's A2 layers' die. Using the same die set, I die cut a white panel, one size larger and a black panel, one size larger than the previous. For the sentiment, I stamped the words from the same stamp set onto some dark green cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed the words and adhered them onto the main panel.
Wishing you a very happy 2022!
