Pootles Design Team – Brightly Lit Christmas – Week 2

I really enjoy taking part in Pootles Design Team challenge – gets my brain engaged a bit! I hope you enjoy seeing what myself and my fellow demonstrators have all come up with using the same stamp set.

Week 1 didn’t publish on time and its very short. I unexpectedly ended up in hospital for a few days so I was unable to sort it out. I have published it now if you want to have a wee look.

Look at this wee cat gazing out at the winter sky – Christmas magic is happening. I really enjoy making these build a scene cards. I have only used 2 colours in total but I think I got a good effect. I hope this inspires you to have a go at masking and sponging, you don’t have to have the sets that I have used. Just mask of a moon and get sponging and build up your own scene, let your imagination take over.

 

Method

The card base is night of Navy – 14.8cm x 10.5cm

whisper white – 10.1cm x 14.4cm

I used my 2.25 inch circle punch to cut out a mask from a post it note. Stick to circle mask where you want the moon to be then using night of navy ink sponge over the whole piece of card until you have the look you want. Remember you can add more ink but you can’t take it away easily so build up lightly.

Remove the mask and gently sponge moon with daffodil yellow unevenly to give an impression of craters.

With Night of Navy Stamp the lamppost where you want it, add a greeting and Santa. Add a punched out night of navy cat with dimensionals. I used card fron builder dies to make a tree stencil to create the wee group of trees in the foreground. Use daffodil yellow watercolour pencil and wink of stella to illuminate the street light. Stick this onto the card base with snail and its done. Great fun!
