Winter Thank youPosted: December 20, 2017
I’m a guest over at the Foiled Fox blog today; you know that is one of my favourite places to share my cards. With less than a week until Christmas I have switched to making thank you cards. This one combines several Penny Black stamps, one from this year and others from Christmasses past. All the snow falling is the effect created when painting over splattered masking fluid. After the painting has dried I rub off the masking to reveal little white dots – snow! The black stamping is done with pigment inks to preserve the sharp defined edges of the trees and deer. The soft tree shapes in the background are stamped in distress inks to enable blending and bleeding into the watercolour sky.
The whole process is described in detail on the Foiled Fox blog and supplies are listed below.
Stamps: snowy village, nature’s friends, woodland beauty, happy snippets
Inks: versafine onyx black, evergreen bough distress ink
Distress Stains: salty ocean, faded jeans, evergreen bough
Hot pressed watercolor paper
Also: masking fluid, stamping platform
