Happy Wednesday everyone! First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who left a comment last week and apologize for not having visited many of you. I’ve been very busy creating Christmas cards, but I’m almost done now and I’ll try to do better in the future!
Here’s a view of my workspace (alias dining room):
As you can see, I also put up a jolly Christmas tree -so you think- but take a closer look (sorry for the dark pics…):
Yep, that’s right, I subsituted snowmen, angels and reindeer for spooks, bats and black cats (which I cut out myself). Can’t help it, I still haven’t accepted the fact that halloween’s over …
Of course, I also created some matching Christmas cards (or should I say Halloween cards in disguise?) based on a gothic arch I created a couple of weeks ago. Here are some examples:
I masked the sun and sponged it yellow, then I created an inverse mask and sponged the sky using four types of blue Distress inks. I stamped the witch (Third coast) and the bats (Holtz). I stamped and masked the fur trees (Katzelkraft) and did some shadow stamping to create depth. I printed the sentiment on my card, added the snowflakes with a white gelpen and heat embossed the sentiment (Scrolls Work) in white and the edge of my card in silver.
Same technique, the trees are Stampinback and the owl Oxford Impressions.
I’d like to enter these cards to the following challenges:
- Macabre Monday “Colorblind Christmas” (creating Christmas cards without using red or green)
- Inkurable Stampers “One layer wonders” (just using one layer of paper for stamping).
This is the place you have to visit to have a look at other people’s workdesks!
