Thank you so much for popping by to take a peek at my creation for the Advent Calendar this year!
You are on the THIRD DAY of the special Magnolia Advent calendar.
Please be sure to leave a comment on this post by Dec 4th for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Magnolia!
I have two projects to share with you and a little tutorial too!
The first project is a scene I created by masking many different stamps. The trees were stamped and masked 8 times! Further down the page I have a tutorial that I made earlier to show how I coloured the pine trees.
After finalising the image I really wanted to have falling snow but I was too scared I would ruin the image if I added white paint directly, so I posed the question to the fabulous Magnolia fans on Facebook and they saved the day, suggesting I should try clear plastic. It worked perfectly, and I even popped it up with 3D tape so it leaves a little shadow on the scene helping to make them appear even more 3D!
Here is a close up of the all important characters.
Show The Way Tilda, Show The Way Baby Rudolph & Show The Way Sign
And here’s a close up of the details in the trees!
Here is a step by step tutorial I wanted to share on how to colour the trees.
I had to create a second card too! I just received the Merry Christmas Tilda and I couldn’t wait to ink her up!
I began by masking her and then I used Distress Inks and a sponge to colour the background as shown.
Then once I had done that I had a bright idea to flick metallic paint onto the background by dunking a toothpick into the paint and then flicking it with my finger.
This was working well until it became apparent that eye protection was necessary as I managed to flick a great big blob of red into my eye!
After cleaning myself up, a bit of eye stinging ouchies and left with a glittery eye… I returned to finish the masterpiece… haha
And of course then I coloured miss Tilda. :)
And here’s the simple card. :)
I hope I inspired you today!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pop back On December 5th to see if you have won a prize.
