Hello Everyone, another no news post, as nothing is going on with us, I think I need to be thankful for that.
I need to say Happy Thanksgiving to my USA friends.
Anyhow I have another Christmas card to show you which ended up not as I saw it originally. I have my lovely blogger pals to thank, for taking it out of the boring card image.
I have follower emails from different sites, that I buy from occasionally who also give freebie images and this is one of them. I could see it as a plain black and white card. So off to my vinyl and Cameo and the image was placed onto the card, I was thrilled with it. So CAS in B&W.
THEN - I had a delivery of four Distress Oxides (Yep! I've succumbed) and I decided to see if I could add a little ink, as I've seen many of you do, behind the trees to make a sunset, the sentiment needed a little "bright". I do remember seeing a card with a beautiful sunset and I used it as inspiration, but from my memory. I wish I could remember whose it was, if it was you, let me know and I'll give you the credit it deserves, I sure it was a recent card? I usually copy the image of cards I'd like to case or something clever I would like to learn, but can't for the life of me find it, if I have copied it! I've even searched the blogs I thought it was from!
This is the result - I did this one and then realised I hadn't allowed for the star light. I added posca pen (another new buy, to enable me to do some splatters, I didn't succeed in that either LOL) to show a little brightness, but I didn't succeed with that either!
Another card had been made, so I added a little colour with DI antique linen behind the star, before doing the background. This was done with DO speckled egg and DI black soot and the sunset being DO mustard seed mixed with DI carved pumpkin. The ink was easily wiped off the vinyl.
