Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
I decided to create a Christmas Card this week with Tim Holtz new Tree Line stamp set combined with PanPastels Permanent Green, Permanent Green Shade and Rich Gold. I die cut a square from scrap paper and then placed the aperture over my card and sponged Permanent Green Pan Pastel over the aperture, adding Permanent Green Shade around the edges. I also added a touch of Rich Gold around the edges of the aperture.
I stamped one of the single trees from Tim Holtz set, stamping with Fern Green Archival Ink but using the second and third generation stamping. I then stamped the tree once again but this time using the first generation stamping.
I placed Tim Holtz Stars Layering Stencil onto the aperture and applied Rich Gold PanPastel over the stars and then removed. I then stamped the Season's Greetings sentiment with Black Archival Ink. I also applied a light spray of fixative over the PanPastels. I also added splatters of Metallic Gold DecoArt Media Acrylic over the background. I added a small drop of Green Gold and Metallic Gold DecoArt Acrylic Paint to a non-stick craft sheet and then ran an old credit card through the paint and added scratchy lines around the square aperture for added interest. I also used a Pitt Pen to add black scribbly lines around the aperture for definition.
I also repeated the stamping and splatters to the inside of the card and I added a touch of gold paint around the edges of my card.
