Hello Journey friends,
Today I'm sharing the start of my Christmas card collection for this year. Today I made a couple of these cards while playing around with the sketch challenge at Creative Blooms. Each month, I host a sketch challenge and a color challenge and I hope that other stampers will join the fun. I don't typically use a lot of patterned paper (I tend to hoard that because I don't want to cut it up) and I usually create my own designed/embellished papers.
In creating this patterned paper, I used some pool play cardstock as my base. I placed some of the snowflake elements (iridescent acetate snowflakes) onto my gelli plate then spread Journey Gesso over that. I removed the snowflakes (and washed them in warm water) then applied the gelli plate to my cardstock. After that, I spritzed the paper with cool pool splash and Shimmer Gold Splash. That's IT!
For the tree (I used the Nature Trees) I applied some Copic dots for lights and some golden Liquid Pearls for dimension. I mounted the card panel onto Butter Cream cardstock and then onto an Oatmeal Cookie cardstock base. I stamped the sentiment with the new Tag Elements ATS.
Hope you enjoyed this project. I'll probably Periscope a tutorial sometime later in the week. Stay tuned and watch my Instagram and Facebook for a heads up!
