Gelli print background with oxide inks

Hello and welcome.

It’s the first Saturday of a new month, and that means its time for a sketch challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

I had so much fun with the previous mixed media challenge that I decided to create a background for my card using my gelli plate with oxide inks and a snowflake mask – I love the water colour effect it produced….

I added scraps of white textured card for the vertical ribbon to follow the sketch, and topped with a decal edge oval die cut by Spellbinders in pool party card by Stampin Up.

I added a 3D snowflake by Tim Holtz, cut from a piece of card that I’d coloured with a mixture of the oxide inks, and topped with a polar bear from the Folk Christmas stamp and die set by Sizzix on whisper white card, coloured with various stampin’ write ink pens.

I stamped a couple of holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set by Stampin Up in old olive ink and used the matching framelits to cut them out.  I added a sprig of foliage in white.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join our challenge this week – we’d love to see what you create using this sketch.

Enjoy your weekend

Black and silver Christmas card

Hi and welcome.

The colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to use black and silver.  Not really my go to colours and this challenge has pushed me out of my comfort zone a bit. As always, neutrals such as black and white are allowed too…

The black and white snowflake dsp by Stampin Up made a good base.  I added silver glitter paper snowflakes die cut using the 3D snowflake embossing folder by Tim Holtz in both sizes.

The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set, and the topper die cut from the Seasonal Labels die set, both by Stampin Up, and I added a die cut foliage sprig from the Holiday Greens die set by Tim Holtz.

I added some black half-backed pearls to the snowflake diecuts to finish.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge this week.

Enjoy your weekend
