Over at 2Peas, Jennifer McGuire is doing a class called Holiday Thinking Inking. Today she showed us how to make a background using an acrylic block as our stamp: you ink it up with distress ink, then spritz with water and carefully stamp on white cardstock. This was the base of my card. Then I stamped the pine trees and painted them in with a paint brush, using pine needles distress ink and perfect pearls and water all mixed together. The bottom white panel was torn and added, shadowing a bit with soft stone shadow ink mixed with perfect pearls and water. After attaching that to the main panel and trimming, I edged everything with faded jeans distress ink, then mounted the panel on a white notecard. Young Deer was stamped, painted with a mix of scattered straw and vintage photo distress inks and perfect pearl water, then cut out. To finish I added the sentiment, some subtle snowflakes stamped in tumbled glass, and some glitter along the snow line and on some of the snowflakes.
