Christmas Sledging



Hi everyone, today I would like to share another Christmas card project with you all!



Step 1:

I started my project by printing this digital image by Lili of the Valley called “Girl Sledging” on alcohol marker friendly paper and than the colouring fun can begin!

Today I’m working with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers (each marker contains three colours that blend well with each other).


I used the following markers: Pale Pink Shades, Dark Red Blend, Fair Skin Blend, Tan Blend, Jade Green Shades, True Blue Blend, Gold Brown Shades, Earth Brown Shades, Brown Grey Shades and Ice Grey Blend.

After the colouring is done I add back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image.



Step 2:

Next I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base using a nesting die set. I decide on my lay out and apply blue ink (Spectrum Noir Harmony Water-Reactive ink in “Ocean Blue”) onto the panel (above the snow line) using a stencil brush. With these brushes you can work the ink outwards nicely without creating hard edges.


Now that I have an even area of blue ink on the paper I place my stencil of choice (TCW720s) over the panel and apply the same ink with the same brush over the stencil to create a tone on tone background.


After this part is done I can stamp my sentiment using black ink (Lili of the Valley “Christmas Handwritten Phrases”).



Step 3:

Time to put my card project together: I die cut a slightly larger mat using dark green card stock. I adhered both panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto my white linen textured base card using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today! I wish you a creative day!
