Peace on Earth- A CAS Sketch and Monochromatic Color Challenge
I am so far behind on my own commitment to create at least six Christmas cards each month for the CCC14 Splitcoaststampers Christmas card challenge!
I wanted to do a quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card and when I saw the CAS(E) This Sketch! CTS#74Sketch, I thought it would be perfect and decided to use The Card Concept#9 Monochromatic Purple Color Challenge along with the TLC480 SplitcoaststampersTry A New Technique Challenge (stamp the sentiment over the image).
Again, I hope you will have time to stop by to visit all of the linked sites above to see all of the wonderful Design Team samples along with the other wonderful entries!
I ended up creating two different cards- the first one was a bit darker than the second....I have not made the multiples yet, which color combo do you prefer?
Create a mask using sticky notes and using a sponge dauber to apply Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink onto the sky area, following with Perfect Plum Classic Ink.
Ink the tree image from Lovely As A Tree using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink, remove the mask and lightly apply a bit of Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink onto the snow banks for a few shadows.
Re-mask and stamp the large pine from Lovely As A Tree using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink onto the front of the card.
Add a few snowflakes using the Chalk Marker and add Dazzling Diamonds to the snow banks using Two-Way Glue.
Stamp the sentiment using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and trim the panel. Mount onto Elegant Eggplant cardstock onto the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.
Following the same steps above, use retired Almost Amethyst Classic Ink onto the sky area and follow with Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink (I did not use Perfect Plum Classic Ink on this card at all) :-).
I did not add any additional ink on the lower portion of the card but the shadows from the photo make it appear as though I did :-)
Stamp Sets: Lovely As A Tree, Holly Tag Set (ODBD)
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, retired Almost Amethyst
Paper: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Sponge Daubers
Thanks again for taking the time to visiting- have a wonderful week!
