This is my third attempt in creating my card! *lol*😂 When I came across forgotten new NBUS Holiday Frames from Simon Says Stamp, the light bulb went off and things finally came together.
I dusted off my Gansai Tambi watercolor paints and created a background wash of blue and purple on a piece of Arches cold press watercolor paper. Built up the colours by drying with my heat tool in between layers. After that, new NBUS trees from Inkadinkado Woodland Wonderland were stamped with Versafine black ink. Splattered the piece with white gouache paint for snow.
Trimmed the panel down to the same size as the frame and adhered behind it. Left the Christmas cutout letters in place then die cut them two more times and stacked for dimension. Spritz the whole piece with a sparkle spray for some shimmer (doesn’t show in photo). To give it more dimension, die cut the frame from regular A2 white cardstock and inked the left and bottom edges of the opening with gray dye ink. Inlaid the framed image to finish.
Are you ready to play along? We have Steph (My Paper Corner) as our guest this month. As always, you can find more inspirations from her and the rest of the design team over on the challenge blog post HERE. The challenge is open till September 24 PST. Hope to see you in the gallery. Thank you for stopping by.
