At 52 Christmas Card Throwdown we have a technique challenge for you!
Such a wonderful way to combine lots of different papercraft techniques with interesting materials and textures. My panel on the left has been sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress Stain and stamped. I then applied gesso and made a stencil using Poppy Stamps Ornamental Boughs die. I used a sponge dauber to rub Mint Macaron and Pistachio Pudding inks through the stencil. I like how the gesso gives the pine needles a ghostly appearance (ghost pine needles...scary thought!).
I used two SU stencils from the new annual catalogue to make the background with its falling snow. Finally, I added a couple of die-cut pine branches with a button tied with linen thread and a sentiment.
I really enjoyed making this card and I do hope you will join us with your fabulous festive creations! April x
