April 7th WMS Sketch for my card - turning the sketch upside down - using trees instead of banners!
For those of you who sometimes ask how I did one thing or another - I thought I'd show step by step pictures on how I created my card. First I traced around one side of an oval Nestability with a light pencil line on the bottom of my card to guide where I'd stamp the trees from the WMS set Teeny Trees. (be sure to use a good artist eraser when you erase the pencil mark so you don't leave any marks)
Then I die cut the oval out of a piece of Eclipse Tape to use as a mask.blending tool and Ranger Distress Ink.
When you remove the mask - you have a snowy white hillside!
I placed the panel inside my Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.
And now we have 'snow' in the sky!Spellbinders Ribbon Banner sponging the edges before taking it out of the die.
Here's how it looks all sponged - leaving it lighter in the center.
And when you remove it from the die - you have a lovely white edge!
I hope you'll join us in the WMS forum for the Christmas challenge each month! You'll be glad you did when November rolls around and you have all your cards made!!
Thanks for coming by today!
