It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's Holly Jolly Stamping. The Christmas season is around the corner, so we need to get those Christmas stamping done. If it's Christmas cards or maybe some Christmas Decor.
I always love to make Christmas cards for family and friends. Every year surprise them with a card that I made. The last few weeks I'm getting more and more drawn by the dark blue tones. I think it's such a beautiful color for the dark winter days.
This time I tried a different technique with the Brushos. I wanted it to stamp with it. With a little powder you can go a long way, and the amount of water determines how intense the color is. In the video below I show the whole process. Unfortunately, some parts were a bit off camera.
I applied some Prussian Blue Brusho to an acrylic block and with some water and a brush I mixed the color. With the brush I applied the color to the Tree Line stamp and stamp with it. It's just regular cardstock, no watercolor paper. I then mixed by the existing color with more water in order to make the color lighter and again apply the ink to the stamp with the brush to stamp the second layer of trees. I repeat this process for the third time for a few scattered trees.
The snowflakes are made with Texture Paste Transparent Gloss and Pale Silver Mica Powder. I mixed that together. With the Snowflakes stencil I applied it. And used a heat tool to make them bubble. If you let them air dry for a little while the bubbles will be smaller, if you heat it right after applying then the bubbles will be bigger.
