Something New

Thursday, January 10, 2019

Hi there! Today I am posting a card that I made for the Simon Monday Challenge. It is my first attempt at a one layer card using masking and my first card created with the January Simon Says Stamp January card kit.

I had so much fun making this card and I learned a lot of new things while I was making it. I started out by stamping my penguins and quickly found that Memento Tuxedo Black doesn't work very well on Bristol Smooth cardstock but it was what I had so I went with it. I made masks for my penguins and then stamped the igloo. I used distress inks for the ink blended background and some shading in the snow. You can't see it all that well in the picture though so I will practice shading so I'm more comfortable with adding color. I used a small paintbrush to flick white acrylic paint mixed with water onto the background. I used my Zig Clean Color markers to color and add shading to the penguins and the igloo. Last, I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. 

My Supplies:
Stamps: SSS January card kit
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire; Zig Clean Color markers in Blender, Deep Red, Wine Red, Scarlet Red, Orange, Pale Gray, and Cool Gray 1
Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock

Thank you so much for coming by!
