Hello and welcome!
It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and this week Pauline is hosting. Her optional theme is "O Christmas Tree" but you may share all your new crafty makes for our "Anything Goes" option if you are already done with Christmas cards. There are two wonderful prizes to win this week so hope you'll join in!
I decided to make a nature themed winter/Christmas card using Lavinia stamps.
I just love how the sparkle makes it appear as if there are Christmas lights decorating the trees and the bunnies are looking up to admire the lights. There is closeup below where the sparkles show up better.
I used torn paper to create hills/snow banks. The sky was done using Victorian Velvet, Wilted Violet and a mix of Blueprint Sketch/Speckled Egg Distress Oxide inks. I recently talked about my disappointment in using my posca pen to flick "snowflakes " onto the card and I already ran out of paint from it, so this time I decided to dilute some white gesso paint with water and I flicked some of it onto the card. I do love the ease of a Posca pen though so I will reorder it and keep practicing my flicking.
