Thursday is here and it is my GDT day at AALL & Create.
I made a couple of cutie Christmas cards featuring the A6 stamp, Merry and Bright, designed by Janet Klein. I used traditional seasonal colours and added a touch of grunge to the backgrounds.
My first card has the mistletoe girl! Her background was made by inking the Lotza Triangle stencil, spritzing with water and using it as a stamp. I used a spare piece of card to smoosh through Distress Oxide, then traced three triangle from the stencil and fussy cut them to make the banner.
I popped the Copic coloured girl on a piece of torn #6 Washi Tape and added the Merry Christmas sentiment.
Here is my second card:
Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint and Weathered Wood Distress Oxides were smooshed onto a craft mat and the card was dipped, dried and dipped again until I was happy with the coverage. White splatters were applied all over and the edges were inked in black with Background Noise and Tile Pile.
The little girl was coloured with Copics and fussy cut. I popped her on top of a gold embossed wooden frame which was on top of black mesh trim and gold trim.I found a Tim Holtz brad with the number 25 in my stash and added this to hold the mesh trims in place.
