Christmas in July for Creative Expressions Design Team


This is my latest card for Creative Expressions DT using Woodware and Phill Martin inks and stamps.

First I created a background by using a wash of Purple Paradise and Lush Pink spray inks. Putting a circle made from a post it in the sky first. Once dry I stamped the Reindeer, then using a MISTI stamped again with perfect medium for the snowflakes and embossed in silver and frosty dawn. Then using a paint brush with some water, bleached out the colour from the image and painted it using the tangy tangerine spray ink. I removed the post it circle and lightly washed over with the lush pink ink spray and I also put some of the tangy tangerine through the moon and splattered onto the card.

I used the splatterlicious background stamp in the sky and on the ground to create falling snow, embossed with frosty dawn powder.

Finally I mounted onto some CE Black foundation card and onto a card base made from CE foundation card. Then using a glue pen I ran scribbled lines around the card and sprinkled with glitter. Then a few more splashes of tangy tangerine.
