So happy to be getting my Christmas cards done well in advance this year :) I'm back with another One Layer Christmas Card challenge Design Team card for you. Here's our next challenge:
Had to put my thinking cap on, after looking through ALL my Christmas stamps. Can you believe I don't have a single Christmas candle stamp? And, believe you, me...I have a ton of Christmas stamps!!!
So, I thought about molten wax, and that was the beginning of this card. I placed some acrylic paints on my craft mat and misted them with some color mists and swished my paper through that a couple of times. Then when it was dry, I stamped the sentiment block twice to make it look like a candle. Then, using some gold paint and my Retro Circles stencil I added the illusion of a flame.
Here's what I used:
Paper: Strathmore 140# watercolor paper
Ink: Ranger jet black archival ink
Stamps: STAMPlorations Vignette: Christmas Block
All the other stuff: Silks acrylic paints, Heidi Swapp color mist, Dylusions ink spray, craft mat, ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil, sponge
Back soon with more my sweet friends...
