Enjoy The Beauty Of The Season

I am still continuing with my Christmas makes this week and today I am showcasing the fabulous MidWinter plate from Artistic Outpost.
I love using kraft card for my Christmas cards, I love the neutral rustic charm it gives to any design. The background of my card has been created using the background stamp from the MidWinter plate stamped with Potting Soil Archival Ink, adding highlights with a white pen for that snowy frosty feel.
I stamped the reindeer once with Potting Soil Archival Ink and then masked the image to stamp the same image two further times. Once again I also added highlights with a white pen and added a few delicate splatters with white paint. I also included Chitchat stickers for further interest, colouring with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to coordinate with my design.
I stamped the sentiment with Archival Ink and added shading with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I cut two snowflakes from white card, coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then added touches of Picket Fence Distress Paint to add to the frosty feel. I also included a few of Tim Holtz mirrored star embellishments.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
