Rejoice! Country Christmas Angel - A Color and Sketch Challenge :-)
Here is another card created last night using a fun retired stamp set, Country Christmas.
This card was created using the CQC258 ColourQ Challenge along with the SC505Splitcoaststampers Sketch and CCC14 Splitcoaststampers’ Christmas CardChallenge.
Again, I hope you will take the time (if you have not done so already) to visit the challenge sites to check out all of the Design Team entries as well as the galleries- tremendous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the angel and sentiment images using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock (also stamp the angel image onto a scrap piece of paper to use for the mask).
Color the images using Stampin’ Write Markers- So Saffron for the hair, Hello Honey for the stars and part of the checkerboard area on the dress, Smoky Slate (in place of Going Gray) for the wings and blocks on the checkerboard area, Blackberry Bliss for the remaining blocks on the dress and Sahara Sand for a few shadows.
Add a few highlights to the star centers and swirls using the Stampin’ Dazzle Gold Marker.
Mask the angel and stamp the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink (stamping off before stamping onto the image).
Trim the angel panel and mount onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Carefully cut out the sentiment and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim around the edge to create the layer.
Adhere a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the lower edge of a piece of All is Calm Designer Series Paper (DSP). Add a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the bottom, trim and mount the entire panel onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim and mount onto the Smoky Slate card base.
Add the Country Angel panel to the center and mount the sentiment to the top right corner using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use the Big Shot™ to cut out the star embossed dies from Hello Honey and Smoky Slate cardstock (I cannot recall the manufacturer’s name but they are very thin and sharp and it is a bit difficult to see the detailed embossing in the picture). Mount the stars onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add a few Rhinestones to the star centers to finish off the card.
