Monday Moment

Today I'm sharing a card I created with two challenges in mind - Christmas Kickstart and CAS Christmas. Never too early to start a Christmas card stash!


I decided to use mainly stencils for my card:

I started by inking the base of the Snow Globe with stormy sky distress oxide. Then I placed the main section of the snow globe and used three colours of distress oxide. I flicked over this with water to create a bit of a snowstorm.

Once the water had dried I inked through the smaller deer from the Steampunk Reindeer stencil using black ink - loving how dainty and different the deer is. I finished it all off with a stamped greeting and matted it onto a 6" square base card.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Festive Phrases
Stencils: Funky Fossil, Steampunk Reindeer, Snow Globe
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, stormy sky, tumbled glass, shaded lilac, spun sugar; Versafine Clair, nocturne

Delighted to have you visit my blog today, thanks so much.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
