Or just save a packet, and get the set!
But which one to use….
Tescos own – 26p
No! Which creation?!
and then which way round??
I see a mother looking down at the sea here…
Mountains and rivers here…
oh! there’s a smiling dragon!
and just look at the young girl with her mother!
Decision made. Or mad?
This is really easy;
the shaving foam has done all the work for you!
Tear a piece of copy paper for the hill mask.
Use the copy paper mask and a fabulous Clarity Tree stamp
to build a mountain landscape.
Let’s check out the tree…can you spot it amongst all these wonderful carols and Claritystamps?
This was the bumper Collection on TV last week.
but if you only want the tree…(haha)
they come as a remountable set of 3
Can you see the stream at the front?
And the footpath?
Sorry, has to be done. Out with the Sprucescape…
Let’s add a few more faded mini Spruce trees too, with the tiny one from the Christmas Miniatures Set:
Or you can use the tip of one of the other trees…
The scrap copy paper mask speaks volumes.
See how much I have blotted and omitted from the artwork here?
Let’s add a gold leaf edge with an 18ct Gold Leafing Krylon pen.
This is pretty special.
Here’s how I do it.
Lay the artwork against a piece of cardboard or mount board (something rigid), and allow the edge you are working on to peep out over the hard backboard.
Nuzzle the edge of the card into the nib of the Krylon leafing pen, and then slowly drag along the length of the card.
Quick, neat and looks very professional and beautiful.
When you stand back, it really does look lovely.
We can add a star.
We can add a message.
(haven’t decided yet)
and we can add a little glitter…
I have lightly added some zig glue in lines. See?
On the trees and hills?
Sprinkle with Glamour Dust.
Tap off excess and voila!
Very classy and festive.
I may add a little tag with the Christmas greeting in the sky.
Or I may just leave it alone.
Either way, it’s a lovely Christmas card.
Quick, easy and very original.
