Guest Designing at Challenge Up Your Life #65
this is my last guest designing post for Challenge up your Life. It was so much fun to be part of this! Thank you CYUL!
This challenge has the cue word "FOREST" and that is what I came up with:
I used an old Hero Arts stamp (K5797) - already shows a forest, so that was the easy part. It is a wooden stamp, so the first thing I did was detach it from its wood block and put it in my Misti. I stamped the trees in black. I then masked the moon and shifted the paper just a tad to the right and stamped again with Versafine. Added Clear embossing powder and treated it with my heat gun. with the mask in place I sponged the top part (masked off the sides).
You can see all this a bit better in the close-up picture. You basically get a white outline to the trees, which gives it a lot of dimension. I also made sure the white line is to the left of the trees, as my moon is on the left and would illuminate that side more.
Added the sentiment (Neat and Tangled).
Hope I can inspire you to play along and make your own forest card!
See you at Challenge up your Life!
Linking up with:
CASology - Season
(winter as this is Holiday season and therefore the most important one for a card maker......)
Less is More - Shadow (shadow stamp)
Papierelle - Tier aus der Heimat (German animal) - there are a couple of deer on this card and they have them in Germany
