It being less than a month until Christmas now (eek) I thought I would share another Christmas card idea with you....
I used 4 different sprays for this card:
Spritz Rocka Fella Blue
Vibez Before Dawn
Coloringz Heidi Ho Blue
I'm sorry that I have no process photos to share, but living in Scotland, it gets dark well before I get back from work, and as I made this in the evening I could only take photos at the weekend.
Here's at least a quick step by step...
Next I used my sprays, starting with Heidi Ho Blue, followed by Princess, RockaFella Blue and a bit of Before Dawn. When dry I added a die cut (the Tim Holtz leaf) and a little Dusty Attic ribbon slider, which I had coated with gesso. Then I spritzed again, with Rocka Fella Blue. I dried the sprays with my heat gun and then dry brushed with gesso to bring out the raised bits. I love the snowy effect this gives over those blues....
A bit of background stamping, using Watering can Archival ink
A die cut sentiment
And finally some metal corner pieces. These were bright silver to start with. I coated them with gesso, spritzt them with the Rocka Fella and then again carefully dry brushed with gesso.
A vintage Santa image (from a Maja Design collection) framed with some Stampendous EP in aged silver finished it all off.
