Chill

Monday, 11 January 2021

 

It is a Chilly day, which is perfect for my card today.

This is for the Scrap'n Stamp Random Act of Cardness challenge for Day 11, with the keyword being Chill. Makes me cold just typing it!


I am using Hammermill 100# cardstock for my die cut panel, which I love to use when I am using my Copic markers. 

The images are from the stamp set by Penny Black called Snowfield Friends. For the Fox I decided I wanted a Grey Fox and when I looked them up for reference I was surprised at how much brown there was, with the tail being particularly dark.


The panel is die cut using Penny Black's Stitched Stackers die. In my mini Misti I arranged where I wanted the images I would stamp, and stamped using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. 

But first, using a piece of torn paper, Speckled Egg Distress Oxide and my Life Changing Brushes I made to snow ridges. I then blended in starting very lightly the colour at the top of the card, adding more colour to each layer that I did, but keeping the colour light so as to not create a line.


I then die cut the Winter Greens, coloured with Copics G43, YG63 and YG67 along with R27 for the berries.

I used the same colours on the little trees, adding more layers of colour by going up from the lightest and back down from the darkest. I then did the Fox using E31, E35 W2 and N4 along with R27 and G14 for the scarf. The fox appears darker in the picture, due to the white surroundings, but it is dark.


To finish up I did splatters using my Bleed Proof watercolour then when dry attached the panel to my cardbase. I then attached the winter greens using Nuvo adhesive at the top only.

I used the sentiment from the Penny Black stamp set that says "The chill of winter is warmed by Family and Friends" which I stamped on the inside. I felt I had enough on the card front.
