Funky Fossil Designs "Tree Silhouette Dies" Christmas Card

Good morning.  It's a bright and sunny one here on Anglesey, but it is also bitterly cold and the icy roads look lethal, so I don't intend venturing out of the house today. 

It appears I have made an icy looking card that matches the weather, amazing how the mind works.  It wasn't intentional.

I've used products from Funky Fossil Designs , two of which I purchased recently and have been keen to work with.

I started by using the Funky Fossil "Herringbone Stencil" over a white piece of card, securing the top with a piece of low tack masking tape, to hold the stencil in position.

Through the gaps in the stencil, I lightly applied three shades of Archival Inks (Pink Peony, Shadow Grey and Forget-me-not) using the Funky Fossil blending brushes, blending out towards the edges of the card, but not to the very edge... if you know what I mean!

I used a torn edge of copy paper and a finger dabber, with two shades of Versafine Clair inks (Warm Breeze and Morning Mist), to create the snowy landscape for the trees.

Using the Funky Fossil "Tree Silhouette Dies" I cut a selection of tree shapes in white card.  I arranged the tree shapes on the card, cutting some of the tree trunks shorter to get different heights and then stuck the trees in to position.

I splattered white paint on to the surface of the card to replicate snow flakes.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the "Snow is falling" sentiment, which is part of the Funky Fossil "Christmas Small Print" stamp set.

  3. The herringbone background makes a beautiful backdrop to the various white die cut trees Sam, and the pink, grey and blue add some warmth and look so soft and pretty. x
