Always up for a challenge and ready to get some serious Christmas card making done this month, I’m taking part in Martin Stone’s 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge.
The theme for Day 1 is Winter Winds. As soon as I saw this I felt a cold, winter chill and a scene popped up in my mind which I wanted to recreate. A chilly, winter’s night with the snow falling to the ground and the wind roaring around sounds cold and cozy all at the same time.
I created a swirling background to depict the wind by swiping my Smoky Slate ink pad across the Whisper White cardstock in a downward swiping motion. This was repeated in Misty Moonlight and a little bit of Early Espresso. Then I used the Kraft ink refill and watered it down with my fine tip Water Painter. I flicked the brush against the lid of the Water Painter to splatter the white ink over my prepared layer. I did the same with the Frost White Shimmer Paint. All these colours and textures created a really blustery, winter’s night.
The die cut trees have been brushed with Wink of Stella and although it’s not easy to pick this up on the photo, it adds a very subtle shimmer.
I just had to add this cute little house from the Coming Home bundle to complete my scene, making it warm and inviting amidst the cold and wild weather going on outside.
Make sure you subscribe to my blog to see what I create each day for this fun challenge. You can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook for all the updates.
