I managed to get one quick card design in today and used all of Penny Black stamps for it. It is a simple scene card.
First thing I did was to use a mask to show the snowline after I had sponged on the blue sky above it. That pretty much set the background. But to add some flakes of snow falling I used water mixed with white acrylic paint and flicked on some specks to look like the snowflakes.
I then stamped the sentiment in black ink and also Snowy. I colored him with my Bic Mark-It pens and then using some Zots I popped Snowy up on the snow background. I also added some snowy flecks to him too!
Penny Black stamps used:
Sentiment from Yuletide Wishes set 30-3082
For some reason I seem to be loving snowmen this season. We don't have any snow on the ground and that is just fine with me, but I do love to see the snow on cards at this time of year. Those I don't have to walk or drive in. You know what I mean? **wink**
I am entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Thinking of You theme and they are featuring Penny Black stamps. I am hoping my sentiment will be considered a Thinking of You type of one as I really did not have any other ones that were even close. But if you want to get technical, I think any card you send to a person should be considered a Thinking of You one as I know when I am writing it out and it goes off in the mail I am keeping them in my thoughts.
Well, wish me luck on arising at about 4:30-5:00 in the morning. I am not a morning person at all and usually I sleep until 8 o'clock. But tomorrow hubby is scheduled for his cataract surgery at 8:45 and we have at least an hour's drive to get there. And, before we can leave we have to try and get certain functions accomplished before that as we hope we don't have to stop along the way. LOL At any rate I plan to try and get to bed extra early tonight. Hopefully, I can fool my body into thinking it isn't that early by doing so. I am not so sure that will work but hopefully, it might help. Keep your fingers crossed that it will work.
You have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.
