CAS Christmas January Challenge - Silhouette

 Hello again.  I know it’s a shocker... a second post in two days! 😂  I’m back this time with the January challenge for CAS Christmas and the theme is Silhouette.  


I used a new never before used stamp set from Newton’s Nook called Winter Memories to create a clean and simple (CAS) winter card.


On a stitched mixed media panel from my stash, the skating couple was black heat embossed.  Used Salty Ocean and Pumice Stone distress inks with a water brush and watercoloured in the ice and trees, respectively, to create my scene. 


For the reflection, the couple was stamped again on a piece of acetate with Memento London Fog ink.  Flipped it over upside down, aligning it with the embossed image, then pressing down.  Used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees and ice details.  Heat embossed the sentiment (retired) with silver embossing powder to finish.


Pat (Colourful Card Creations) is our guest this month.  She along with the design team have made beautiful cards to inspire you HERE.  Hope to see you in the gallery.  Thank you for dropping by.
