As I promised, today I am sharing the step by step instructions on how I did the Serene Silhouettes Snow Birds Christmas card I posted the other day. Click here to see the original post.
I started off by punching a 1 3/4″ circle from a sticky note for my moon mask and ripped a scrap of cardstock for my ground mask. I positioned each of the masks on a piece of 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ whisper white cardstock.
Next I sponged the cardstock with the smoky slate classic ink. I prefer to use a circle motion with my hand when sponging.
Once I was happy with my sponging I moved my ground mask over and sponged a bit more to make a little snow hill.
This is what mine looked like when I removed all the masks after I was done sponging the gray background color.
To add a little bit of a glow around the moon, I sponged using our white craft ink. It is ok to get some of the white ink on the moon itself.
Next I inked up the birds in a tree image from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set in Basic Gray classic ink. I used my blender pens to remove the gray ink from the birds.
Once the ink was off the birds I went back with my Cherry Cobbler stampin’ write marker and colored in the birds. Be generous with the ink when coloring directly on the rubber for best results.
I put the ground mask back in place and stamped the image.
This is what mine looked like after I stamped the image.
Next I added some snow to the background by dabing my gel pen all over the background.
I stamped my greeting from the Good Greeting hostess set in Cherry Cobbler classic ink.
To finish the layer I spritzed all over with the vanilla smooch spritz.
I completed my card by layering my stamped layer on piece of 3 3/4″ x 5″ Basic Black cardstock to create a narrow frame and then popped it up on my card base with dimensionals.
Hope you enjoy!
