Holiday Card Series 2017 - Silhouettes in the night

mercredi 22 novembre 2017

Hey there,

I have been wanted to make these cards for a very long time since I had this gorgeous stamp set for weeks! I really looove the result, it is so so so pretty! I also use bristol cardstock and I think it allows to blend the colors better than traditional watercolor paper.

So I first started by creating the backgrounds using different shades of colors each time. Also inked a strip on the bottom using black memento ink.

Let the panels dry overnight, and then the day after I stamped the silhouettes using the same black ink and my misti tool so I could repeat the stamping to get an intense black.

I also stamped the sentiments, and then I simply drew a bunch of dots on the background to create starry skies. Attached the panels to black card bases and it was done!
