Hello and thanks so much for stopping by! It's time already for our midmonth share at the Penny Black and More challenge blog. Our theme this month is "Christmas" and you still have plenty of time to join us with a Christmas make for a chance to win one of our great prizes. And remember you can enter up to times for more chances to win!
For today's card I decided to get out the cute stamp Caroling Trio by Penny Black. I stamped and heat embossed it on Bristol Vellum paper Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and clear embossing powder. I stamped it again on a post it note and cut it out to use as a mask on my card front. I also added a mask (out of torn printer paper) for a snow drift. Next I flicked some masking fluid onto the background using an old kids crayola paint brush, went to eat lunch and when I got back the masking fluid was dry so I could ink up the background. I used Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks starting with the lightest color.
Next I removed the masks and colored the image with Distress inks (Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Spun Sugar, Wild Honey) and a Zig Detailer waterbrush. Using a clean paper towel I rubbed off the dried masking fluid to reveal the snowflakes. The sentiment from the Penny Black set Season's Gifts (my favorite Christmas sentiment set) was heat embossed using the same Versafine ink and embossing powder. My card base is heavyweight white card stock from Michael's.
