This is lovely and really full of good ideas for techniques to add depth to our cards. I love the misty look you achieved with the white pigment ink.

Project - Wish upon a star

Galleries: Stamping, Cardmaking
Here's another Christmas card, based on the song ‘When you wish upon a star’, but the Swedish translation, which goes ‘Do you see the star up in the blue?’ I stamped the title with alphabet stamps in the snowy meadow. I thought the comet stamp worked well for the star in the song. The scene is done on glossy cardstock and coloured with dye and pigment ink. First the cabin was stamped with Jet Black ink and then more trees were stamped to the side of the cabin to full up the forest. Even more trees were stamped behind, using blue ink to create some depth. The clouds were stamped with Denim ink, and so were the Comet and the Milky Way. Blue inks were sponged on the scene leaving quite large areas the white of the paper. Highlights and snow were added with a white gel pen and finally white pigment ink was applied as mist, around the legs of the doe, in the forest, above the clouds and here and there in the sky. TFL!!
