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
