Here today to remind everyone there's still time to play in the December CAS Mix Up Challenge!
For my card today, I stamped, sponged over stencils, added Wink of Stella for some shimmer and layered a die cut deer over my panel.
First I sponged over a Wendy Vecchi Check Mate Stencil with Watering Can Ink - keeping the ink lighter on the edges and not sponging the whole panel.
Then I sponged pine trees from the Wendy Vecchi Happy Holidays stencil over the background stenciling using 3 different Wendy Vecchi Archival inks, Cornflower Blue on the tree in the background, Fern Green on the big foreground tree and Leaf Green on the smaller foreground tree.
I die cut a deer 3 times and glued the three together to make it a thicker more sturdy animal, tied a piece of Tinsel String around his neck and layered him over the panel with foam dots
(almost completely covering the little tree! but I felt that was the best place for him aesthetically!)
I brushed Clear Wink of Stella Glitter over the tree and snowflakes to give a little sparkle - it really shimmers IRL!
Another card made for my Christmas stash - I have a box full now and better go count them to see if I have all I need to send out this year! I'm so happy when I get them done before the holiday rush!
So please join us over at the December CAS Mix Up Challenge - you have until the end of the month to link up! You'll find more sponging inspiration from the Design Team here.
