"Sponging" was the challenge for the 4th Heart 2 Heart Challenge this month.
I wanted to create a scene using the Christmas Village set, so I started with some Colonial White paper from the Frosted paper set. I used the smallest snowflake in the Santa Claus set and embossed using a discontinued powder from Close To My Heart that had a bit of a pearl accent to it. I then sponged the top using Twilight ink, which was perfect. For the bottom, to give a look of drifting snow, I used Slate ink and tried to go as a light as possible.
The trees and snowman were stamped directly onto this layer. I then colored with Copics and used a white pen to highlight the snow on the trees. I adhered this layer to piece of the pattern paper in the Frosted collection, and then adhered to an A2 card base.
For the house, I stamped on a scrap of Colonial White and then cut it out. I colored with my Copics and again used the white pen for the snow. I used liquid glass on the windows and then adhered
I have to say this was a tedious, but fun card. I loved creating that wintery scene.
