AALL & Create: Warm and Cosy


Today for my guest DT post for AALL & Create I have a card featuring one of Janet Klein's little cuties and her puppy.

My background was made by smooshing and tapping card into Distress Oxides. Next I applied texture paste through stencil #114 Art, picking out the flower blossom shapes to replicate snowflakes. I added texture paste randomly to the base of the card. Whilst the paste was still wet, I sprinkled some holographic glitter onto it.

Next, I added some tone on tone stamping to the background using Janet's  #338 Background Noise stamp set. I also added some black stamping, using #404 Visual Ingredients, to the edges of the background to frame it.

The elements from stamp set #426 Warm and Cozy were stamped onto smooth white card with Memento ink. These were then coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut.

The images were popped on foam tape and onto the background along with the sentiment which I cut into strips and edged with black ink.
I matted the image onto black card, then on to glitter card and popped it onto a blank card base.

Stamps used:
#338 Background Noise
#404 Visual Ingredients
#426 Warm & Cozy
Stencil used:
#114 Art
