I hope I find you fine and dandy and not suffering from the sniffles which are around here at the moment.
Tuesday morning brings us to the final challenge of the year over at Cardz4Guyz.
So how appropriate that it should be :-
THE BIG GUY
In other words we would like to see your male oriented projects featuring Santa himself.
My card was inspired by the awe and wonder shown by my Grandson last year when we all wrapped up to see Santa crossing the sky. (shh, it was actually the European space lab).
The look on his face was priceless as was his face when Santa rang to say that he'd heard he'd been a little naughty in the run up to Christmas!
I picked this DoCrafts stamp up in the £1 bucket at The Range a few weeks ago and thought it perfect for this challenge.
After stamping and heat embossing in black I masked off everything except the sky so I could ink it with DI 'Chipped Sapphire'. I added a little colour to the trees with a w/c brush and more DI, then using a Versamark pen, I inked the tree branches and dotted the sky. Next I added some chunky white embossing powder to create the snow. To stop the moon being too stark I brushed on some DI in weathered wood. The Penny Black sentiment was then stamped using a dark blue ink.
That's about it, pop over to the main blog to see what the rest of the team have made for your further inspiration and join in.
I shall enter the following challenges:-
Less is More - OLC Snow
The Male Room - Christmas
