Hey there! Today's card was inspired by one of the pictures included in the December Creative Crew "Winter Wonderland" Challenge. I used an oldie-but-goodie technique, Crayon Resist, with the Season Like Christmas set to create my version.
Here's the inspiration photo. How do you think I did?
To create my window I cut two windows with the Hearth & Home Thinlet. I cut off one end of each frame.
I then overlapped the middle windows to create a six-paned window from two four-paned ones. I used Liquid Glue as my adhesive.
I used the Crayon Resist Technique for my winter scene. I stamped the tree from Season Like Christmas with Dapper Denim ink on Glossy card stock, then used a white crayon to scribble in the open spaces between the branches. After adding a 3/4" circle punched from the sticky area of a Post-it note, I then used a Sponge Brayer to add Smoky Slate ink over the whole piece. The crayon resists the ink! After rolling on the color I then rubbed over the piece with a tissue to remove excess ink and to make the white "snow" areas stand out more. Before I removed the post-it punched circle I stamped snowflakes from Tags & Trimmings with Smoky Slate ink.
I heat-embossed "Merry Christmas" from the Star of Light set with white powder on Basic Black. I punched it out with the Classic Label Punch to adhere to the Marina Mist background I had dry-embossed with the Garden Trellis folder.
Inside I stamped more Season Like Christmas trees and another Star of Light sentiment, all with Dapper Denim ink.
