Christmas Collage

I hope all is going well in your part of the world.
Today's card is a collage style using stencils and stamps.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I found a blue 'roll off' sheet that I had in my stash.  It was a piece of white cardstock that I rolled excess Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink off with my brayer while Gel Plate printing.  
  • I placed the panel onto my Make Art Station and put the Chain Weave stencil over that and inked with some Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink.  I inked just to the right side of the panel as I wanted to add more stenciling and the snowflake to the left.
  • I removed that stencil and placed the Halftone Circle over to the left side and inked that up with some more Peacock Feathers to create my collage.
  • I got out my Misti to stamp the snowflake with some Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink.  The snowflake set comes with some snowflake dots that I inked with Blueprint Sketch DOX ink and stamped those around the snowflake.
  • I stamped the sentiment into the corner using my Misti again.
  • I glued the card front onto a piece of light blue cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • To finish my card off, I added a dark blue gem to the center of the snowflake.

Here are the stencils I used:

The Dots and Chain Weave stencils look great together, and the black CCC large snowflake is gorgeous and works brilliantly over the top Karen, and finished with a lovely sentiment. x
