For this card I started with white cardstock, I cut a circle mask for the moon, then using Ranger Ink Essentials Blending Foam I started rubbing in color using Adirondaks Cloudy Blue, Sailboat Blue, and Denim inks (in that order). Using the Picasso Stencil I added some clouds. When I finished that I removed the circle mask, and using Copic Markers (Y11 and Blender Pen) colored in the moon. I then stenciled Santa & Sleigh with Black Glossy Paste.
I started with the Snowflakes Stencil, Blending Foam, and Cloudy Blue, Sailboat Blue, and Denim starting with lightest color, move color into the background. After removing the stencil I added color around the edges using the darkest color. Taking the Winter Stencil, I taped it in the lower right corner of the card and pasted it with Blue Glossy Paste. Set this aside to dry. For the Snowflake Stencil I used Double Sided Mounting Paper. I started by rubbing the back of the stencil with Handmade Hawaiian Soap (this is done so when its time to remove the stencil it comes off easily and doesn't bend), placing it on the Double Sided Mounting Paper, I mounted on white cardstock, glitter the snowflake with Glitter Ritz Microfine Glitter Cool Highlights. Remove the stencil and glitter the background with Glitter Ritz Microfine Glitter Canadian Blue. Layer everything together and add your own bling!
I started with light Blue cardstock and the Bare Trees Stencil. I misted the card with Memory Mists Blueberry Milkshake, let it dry, then I added Memory Mist Iridescent Spray. After the background was dry I took the Horse & Sleigh Stencil, taped off half of the stencil and then used the other half to stencil onto the background with Black Glossy Paste. I let that dry and used the Merry Winter Stencil with White Embossing Paste. After taking off the stencil, I added crystal glitter. Layer card together and add some bling.
