Here’s one Martyn and I did together in the Classroom on TV last time, using the Jigsaw Puzzle Stamp and the Winter Wonderland. Both sets are very versatile, and very popular! It’s never hard for me to find something blue; I guess blue is just bluetiful!
Ready for a simple step-by-step?
All you need is
Stamp the jigsaw puzzle in Cobalt on Theuva Card.
Cover up all 4 sides with post-Its
Stamp the Winter Wonderland into place. Blot lightly on copy paper first, for a mottled effect.
add the trees and deer….
Sponge Cloudy blue around the edges. Add a few hillocks, and shadow under the deer.
Coat the whole area with Versamark.
Remove the post-its.
Cover with Clear embossing powder.
Dust off excess speckles.
Heat emboss from underneath.
Flatten and admire!
Cut the Snowflake stencil into 2!
Position the 2 parts above and below the Winter Scene.
Load the stencil brush with Cloudy blue
(and believe me when I tell you : these brushes of ours are pretty spectacular,)
Carefully dust the snowflake stencil with cloudy blue stencil brush.
Remove stencil to reveal a subtle, ghosty snowflake background. Very very cool.
Do a waltz around the edge with the little snowflake stamp. Ink up in black Archival and start stamping:
123 ink 123 ink 123 ink. Just keep travelling round all four edges.
Pretty straightforward really. And it didn’t take long. and it’s pretty. And it’s blue!
