This week’s Dynamic Duos DD81 “Your Choice” Week uses Midnight Muse and your choice of color. As much as I love Night of Navy, I also love Midnight Muse- it has such a rich deep color.
I hope you will find the time to visit the rest of the fabulous Design Team projects- they did a fabulous job with this color challenge!!
I also used a winter theme for the Stampin' Royalty SR204 Challenge- they have a wonderful Design Team and all of the entries can provide so much inspiration as well!
To create this card:
To create this card:
Use Sponge Daubers and torn sticky notes to create the sponged background- first sponge Pool Party Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock as you mask the sky areaAdd a few shadows on the hills using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and the darker areas in the sky.
Ink the tree from the hostess set, Warmth and Wonder using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping onto the sky line area. Repeatedly stamp the trees along the sky line and stamp the foreground tree using Midnight Muse Classic Ink (without stamping off first).
Stamp the deer image using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and if needed, fill in any lightened areas using the Stampin’ Write Midnight Muse marker as well :-). Add a few shadows for the tree and deer using the Sponge Daubers with the Midnight Muse Classic Ink and the marker.
Trim to size and mount onto Midnight Muse cardstock, trim and mount again onto Pool Party and Midnight Muse cardstock.
Add a few highlights to the snow banks using Two-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter (the glitter is very difficult to see in the photo :-)).
Use Midnight Muse Classic Ink to stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the 1 ¾” Circle Punch and layer onto the 1 ¾” Midnight Muse cardstock circle (cut the Midnight Muse cardstock circle in half and adhere behind the sentiment circle allowing the edge to show on the sides).
Adhere a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the Midnight Muse card base and add the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP) panel (also mounted onto Midnight Muse cardstock).
Mount the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® as well as the sentiment.
Add the 3/8” Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon triple ribbon bow and Rhinestones to finish off the card.
