Hi, welcome to my late night post to announce the latest challenge at ATSM.
This week our theme is -


So, lots of scope for you all there!
Here is my card for the DT inspiration.

This is a one layer card made for a couple of challenges as the AG theme always gives me too many ideas!

I started by cutting a square aperture in some scrap paper then placing it over my base card, added a circular mask and a torn paper mask for the hills, then inked the exposed base card with Chipped Sapphire DI.
After removing the circular mask I stamped some tree tops and my Santa with his reindeer. I coloured the sleigh with Copics and a little white gel pen. The large mask and hill masks were then removed, I stamped the greeting from Crafters Companion, in black and added some stars to the sky with my white gel pen.
Job done.  One layer cards are all in the planning, so look more difficult than they are!

  1. What a wonderful card! Love the partial sponging!

  2. Your card is soooo nice. And it really really is funny, that I was making a one layer card myself yesterday and guedd what, I used a very similar stamp and our cards could be sisters! You will see it soon on my blog. Really really lovely, your silhouette card. Sunny regards from your ATSM team-mate stempelfrida

  5. What a beautiful winter scene!! I love the atmosphere you created with Santa riding past the big wintery moon!! Gorgeous imagery! Thank you so much for joining us at Try It On Tuesday for our 'Create a Scene' challenge! Hugs, Pamellia DT :)

  6. A gorgeous wintry scene, made all the more special with Santa and his sleigh dashing through the air. You've made me feel all warm and festive...

  7. The masking on this is so fab! Love it! I'm always in awe of people who can achieve such a perfect pristine effect because if I tried this I'd wind up with inky fingerprints everywhere - I'm sure of it.
