Christmas Window

December 26, 2017

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this cute little Christmas card with the help of the Gerda Steiner Designs Gopher it stamp set:

  • stamp the the cute little guy from the Gerda Steiner Designs Gopher it set and the Christmas Hat from the Gerda Steiner Designs Snow Angel set with Versafine Vintage Sepia - use the Masking Technique
  • color the image with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut out the Lawn Fawn Wonderful Window from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock and cut out a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock that fits right behind that window opening
  • stamp the Christmas Tree from the Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams set and mask it
  • add color to the background with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and create a pattern by applying Distress Oxide Ink Iced Spruce to the Tim Holtz Tiles Mini Layering Stencil
  • stamp a bow and the little cookie plate from the Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams set
  • color these additional images with Faber-Castell Polychromos as well
  • create a backdrop using patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Sugar Plum 6x6 paper pad and one of the Tattered Lace Torn Edge Rectangles dies
  • stamp the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Many Mini Messages set with Versafine Vintage Sepia onto a sentiment strip cut with one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Strips from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock
  • layer all the elements onto a stitched rectangle cut from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock and adhere it to a cardbase

Here is another picture of this adorable little Christmas critter:

First I coloured the background with some distress ink "Festive berries" and added some "Black soot" around the edges. I spritzed it with water for a...
