Little Star

Hi there,

here is a one-layer card for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown:

  • stamp the cute little reindeer and the sentiment from Unity Stamp Company Oh Little Star with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) on a kraft cardbase
  • color the image with Distress Markers (Tattered Rose, Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo, Black Soot, Festive Berries, Fired Brick) and a waterbrush
  • add Stickles (Christmas Red) and white gel pen to the nose, Stickles to the tiny heart and Delicata (Golden Glitz) to the little star; to use the ink from the ink pad like paint, just press the inkpad on an acrylic block and use a waterbrush to pick up the color and transfer it to the image
  • stamp the beautiful snowflakes from Personal Impressions Snowflakes with Delicata (Silvery Shimmer) as a background
  • after having a closer blook at the finished project, I realised that the sentiment was not completely straight - things like this drive the perfectionist in me a bit crazy but I liked the card too much to start over - what would you do?

I would like to participate in the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenges #12 - Anything goes

Merry Monday Challenge #147 - Stars

One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #4

Rudolph Days February 2015

Make it Monday Challenge #212 - CAS One Layer Cards

  1. Very pretty...those snowflakes have such a delicate shimmer!

    Your image is a cutie too. I usually stamp sentiments crooked. That is why you almost always see mine on a separate scrap of card and then added to my card....usually overtop of the spot where I stamped crooked! lol

    Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge. Good luck!
