It is that time of month again where the design team over at Elizabeth Craft Designs gets together and plays along with the designer challenge.
This month’s challenge is a A Very Krista Christmas – where the team Creates a Christmas or Winter card using any of Krista Schneider’s new Christmas/Winter themed Stamp sets.
I may have gone a little copic coloring crazy today using the new Elves stamp set.
Step One: Stamp out the scene using copic friendly black ink.
Step Two: Using a copic friendly pen, draw in a ground line, fill in the banner lines and add a sketch of a tree marking where you need it.
Step Three: Color in the stamped images using your alcohol markers. I used copics.
Color all the stamped images first, making sure they remain the star of the scene. You should use your boldest colors on the focal images.
Step Four: Start coloring in the back ground with your alcohol markers. I always start with the floor to help ground the characters into the scene.
Fill in the tree and add some color to the back ‘wall’.
Step Five: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches, and score and fold it at 6 inches to create a 6×6 inch card frame. Trim a piece of 6×6 piece of True Green Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the sentiment out of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock from the Words 5- Winter Wishes die set.
Step Six: Die cut a rectangle frame using Garden Notes Frame It/stitched rectangles out of some True Green Soft Finish Cardstock. Add the colored scene into the frame and adhere with 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Seven: Adhere the Green Frame to the card base using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the sentiment to the frame using Kids Choice Glue.
