#405 – Guest Designer at Merry Monday!!

Hello! I was granted the opportunity to feature as Guest Designer over at Merry Monday Challenge after I won one of their previous challenges.

The challenge this time is to make a one layer Christmas card.

And here’s mine –

Merry & Bright

To make this card, I first stamped the falling snow, using the stamp from Paper Trey Ink Good Times mixing Hero Arts Soft Pool and Tide Pool inks. I then stamped the happy snowman, from Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes, using Antique Linen distress ink and then colored him using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils. I also colored the snow he’s standing on using the pencils. I finally stamped the sentiment from Paper Trey Ink ‘Tis The Season using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Finally I added a bit of sparkle using Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen. I touched a few of the falling snowflake dots, the sentiment and the snowman. A little glitter looks really awesome (yeah, it doesn’t show at all in these images, but it really is beautiful IRL)! Made me think that there really was snow on the card! πŸ˜‰

Well, that’s my card! Very simple, very easy! πŸ™‚
