Just a quickie ...... I'm on the last minute (as usual!) with this week's entry for the Merry Monday Challenge.
I missed last week's ..... I can't miss two in a row! The challenge theme this week is ......
'To create a festive card that evokes the calm, peaceful feeling of a silent night before Christmas' ..... I don't know what it's like in your house leading up to the festive season, it's anything but calm and peaceful in ours!!
Here's my take on this week's challenge ....... inspired by the lovely Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps
Very clean and simple to do, but very effective.
I masked off the circle in the centre of a piece of white card ...... added in a smaller circle for the moon, and used a torn piece of copier paper for the hills. Using Stormy Sky Distress ink I then built up the background scene ........
With the masks still in place (except the one for the moon) I added in the Christmas trees, stamped using Paris Dusk Memento ink.
I finished off by adding the deer silhouette, my greeting, and of course a touch of sparkle with a sprinkling of fine crystal glitter.
I also added in a few snowy dots to the sky using a white gel pen ......
with, of course, a little of the same on the inside .....
I'm getting quite the collection of Christmas cards, thanks to Merry Monday. It's a fabulous little Blog challenge ... why not join in the fun!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Cheerio until next time
