Oh Happy!

Hello crafty friends!

I'd like to welcome a new follower, Jackie P. Neal.  I'm so glad you could join me, Jackie!

I'm here today with a Christmas card I made for our swap in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group. 

I used a digital stamp set called Oh Happy! from Vera Lane Studio. I love the fun, quirky characters with their wobbly eyes and silly expressions. Head on over to the shop to see the wonderful sets created by artist Janet Klein.

I inked my background, with ink dusters and a blending tool, onto satin silk art card from Inkilicious. I used a punched circle as a mask to act as the moon. Once I was happy with the sky colour, I blotted some water droplets to remove some of the ink, then stamped snowflakes and heat embossed them with Snowflake Tinsel EP. I die cut some snow drifts, using a border die, and arranged them onto my black mat. My three characters were coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and finished with Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. Glitter was applied to the snowman, the elf's white fur trim and the reindeer antlers. Glossy accents was added to the reindeer's nose, the elf's belt buckle and bell and the snowman's carrot nose. All three images were fussy cut, leaving a thin white border. They were adhered to the card on foam pads. The sentiment also comes with the digi set; it was die cut and attached on foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today!
