Hi everyone, it's a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps blog today and for this fortnight the challenge is '9 weeks 'til Christmas' . As always there's a great prize from Kim and any stamps are welcome.
I've used several Paperbabe stamp sets and they're stamped over a blended ink background on Artcuts birch ply shapes. On the heart shape I've stamped over a blue and white ink background with a stamp from 'Spritz and Speckles' for a snowy effect followed by the stag, and several small stamps and reindeer names from 'Reindeer Fusions' then I've added a dotted border in white pen. The stag came out quite well considering I stamped onto wood; I added a bit of colour with watercolour markers and wink of stellar glitter pen which shows up quite well in the photo above.
I've added a bit of dimension around the stag with a mid grey marker blended out with water. The stag was stamped in brown brilliance ink and I used that to edge the heart as well.
As before I blended a blue and white ink background over the tag and then stamped with the Christmas text stamp 'a lot like Christmas' in white ink. Over the top I've stamped with several stamps from 'Sparkle Bright' in different coloured inks around the tag and I finished with a white pen dot border.
I hope you'll join us for the challenge.
