Day 2 of the Kolour It Up Challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and so I headed into my krafty studio tonight to stay on track.
What to make…what to make??
I actually have so made ideas for this holiday season and so many gift and card ideas to tackle but my time is limited tonight so I thought I was going to do something simple….and then I went off in another direction! LOL! Sometimes that’s the most fun.
I used the new Holiday Village set and chose a sentiment from the new Holly Jolly Ornaments set and added in snowflakes from the Perky Penguins set. I can see a theme here….certain stamps are going to get used over and over and over again.
I used a Christmas bulb shape that I cut out with my Silhoutte Cameo machine. I then used the new Krafty Basics Stencil from Kraftin’ Kimmie and the new Bubbly Blue Hybrid Ink and inked in some snowbanks.
Then I used my Misti platform to stamp in the scene. After I stamped the sentiment in Northern Pine Memento Ink, I decided to emboss it with Diamond embossing powder to make it sparkle. I used a combination of my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers to colour the scene.
Then I just had to highlight the snowmen, trees, house and fence line with Liquid Applique and Glamour Dust to create the magic. It’s so unfair that the picture just doesn’t do it justice. It sparkles.
I used my Gellyroll Stardust pen to edge the entire bulb as well as the middle of the snowflakes to add a final touch. Well, I guess the Christmas lightbulb ribbon and twine is the final, final touch!
And Day 2 is a wrap!
See you tomorrow!!
