CMCC94 Silent Night

Hi Friends!!

Woohoo!  It is time for the new Colour Me...! CMCC94 "Colour Me Subtle" Challenge and I decided to use masking to create a wintery scene for one of my Splitcoaststampers' CCC15 Christmas Challenge designs along with the CAS336 "Under the Stars" Challenge.  

I hope you will have a chance to check out the rest of the Design Team projects and create your own project to join in on the fun!! 

To create this card:

Create a few masks from sticky note paper for the moon and hills.
Place the notes onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, use Sponge Daubers to apply Pumpkin Pie, Watermelon Wonder and Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink to the sky area.

Use an AquaPainter™ to apply a bit of ink over the moon.
Move the masks for the snow banks and lightly apply Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink to create a few shadows.

Ink the Wonderland and Lovely As A Tree images using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, mask the snow banks and stamp the trees to the scene. 

Add the sentiment at the bottom of the panel using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, trim again and mount onto Watermelon Wonder cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the Elegant Eggplant card base.

Using a Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen marker, add the snowflakes to the sky and over the snow banks.

Add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Woodland, Lovely As A Tree

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink; Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Watermelon Wonder; Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker

Paper: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Watermelon Wonder
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Masking Paper, Rhinestones

OK- not sure if this card is very subtle since I find the colors to be quite dramatic together :-)  I did have fun creating this nighttime scene and hope you will find the time to join in  and come play along with us at Colour Me...!

Thanks again for visiting-  hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!

This really is gorgeous, no other word that suits it better. Also like pumpkin pie as the soft shadowing of snow.
