CHRISTMAS EVE


Hi there!

I sure have missed all of you, my friends !!! I finally made another card after being away from it in what seems like forever. Theresa, my daughter got me so excited about her latest stamp set "Dashing"
that I decided to give it another go. She gave me a quick little class and I was hooked again.
I'm sharing with you my second card using the stamp set "Dashing" by Gina K. Designs.






Supplies:
Stamp set: "Dashing" GKD
Ink: GKD Pigment White and Memento Summer sky, Danube Blue and Nautical blue
Daubers
Card stock: GKD
Marker: white chalk
Post-it notes, Zig glue pen, circle die.

Here is a little info on how I did the snow and the moon.

The moon was made with a template using the 1 5/8 die on the post-it note, I then sponged the moon 
on my white card stock with Summer Sky and a almost dry dauber of Nautical blue, using very light pressure just to give it a hint of depth.

For the snow, I used the white chalk marker ( which had dried out from lack of use!) So I just would tap it in the GKD white pigment pad to add snow to the trees, banks and stars. I thought the snow needed to be a little darker in the shaded areas , so I used my dauber that I used with Summer Sky without reinking sponged over where I wanted the shade to be. I hope this is helpful.

Hope to be back with another card soon, as always,  Geri

BEEN AWHILE!

Hi
It's been awhile since I have made a card or posted anything. I got this gorgeous stamp set by Theresa Momber  for Christmas and just had to give it a try. I have really missed this and all of you my friends.
Hope to be back to stamping more and visiting your blogs. The set is THE WETLANDS by Theresa Momber illustrator for Gina K. Designs at Stamp TV
I colored the duck with colored pencils and blended it out with OMS.




Hope to be back soon!
