We have a new challenge over at AAA Cards this week - Christmas!!! It's only 21 days until Christmas day and we want to see you get into the holiday spirit! There is $20 up for grabs from our sponsors Happy Little Stampers for the winner.
This week we also have Marianne as our Guest Designer. She has created a gorgeous inspiring card, and I highly recommend checking out her blog, she has some really fab ideas for cards on there!
Now, onto my card. This week I decided to go back to some good old ink blending. I die-cut a circle from some Inkadinkado masking paper (using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die) and used the negative to mask over a card base made from Neenah Solar White cardstock (110lb). I then used Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot to mask a 'night sky' effect. I then peeled off the masking paper and it was pretty cool - also the stitched lines had been blended in, which was a happy accident!
I flicked on some water splatters and some splatters of sparkly clear mist by Tattered Angels and left to dry. In the meantime on the same cardstock I die cut then heat embossed using Ranger Super Fine Silver embossing powder a Star Scribbles image from PaperTrey Ink.
Once the ink was dry I stamped a sentiment from PTI's 'Tis the Season (love this set) which I heat embossed in white.
To finish, I added the diecut stars using foam squares for dimension. This took FOREVER (lots of foam square cutting) so I don't recommend it !!! (Use fun foam and diecut it with the paper at the same time).
Please join in the fun this week and be sure to check out the other inspirational cards from the rest of the DT. We love your comments and if I don't see you again beforehand, have a very merry Christmas!
