.......and we've reached the
end of another busy week!
Time for you to put your
feet up and relax with a cup
of something warm and
cheery before you have to
hit the treadmill once more
Here's Jane Castle with the
final Christmas Animal for
"Hi Everyone, for my Christmas Animal
I chose the Stag, such an elegant creature
and one that has become more readily
visible in our neck of the woods during
the past 10 years.
To begin with I coloured some of the
Creative Expressions Pop-ems deer using
ink straight from the coffee bean ink pad.
These were then put to one side while I
created a scene on my card blank.
The sentiment was stamped at the bottom
righthand corner and the sky was coloured
with DI and a blending tool.
Next I placed 2 blobs of paint on my craft mat
and gradually blended graduating colours to
be sponged through my
Tim Holtz Woodland Layering Stencil.
Adding slightly different shades as I went.
I love how the Zinc paint gives that
Gradually the scene starts to build.
With christmas cards I like to make
several in one sitting.
Then using the same sponge and paints
I added some snowey hills to ground my trees
Using a Quickie Glue pen I added some
glitter to the trees and the ground.
Stickles could also be used for this.
All thats left is to add my Stag.
Although the coffee bean ink pad isn't a
pearlescent one it still has a slight sparkle
Really liked using the Pop-ems,
good selection of sizes and different poses.
Plus once the deers have been used
you are left with a pretty comprehensive
stencil ------ bonus!!!"
