AS promised I am starting to share some of the Christmas cards I have made which mix die cutting along with my stamps and media plates. Today's First card is a perfect way to use some of the backgrounds you can make with the larger media plate mixed with the stunning Christmas dies from Amy Designs.
I stared by making a background using a mix of inks and my Winter Tress stamp set on the larger media plate. I mixed night, south seas and verbena on the plate then using perfect medium I used the resist technique with some of the snowflakes from the stamps. there is a video on this technique on my you tube channel click HERE to see the video.
I cut this down to a 5" x 5" panel and added it to a 6" card blank with a black matt. Next I stamped more of the snowflakes over this using the Silver pigment ink pad from the Izink range.
I cut the larger circle from the set in black and stamped silver snowflakes over this before matting it onto the mirror card cut frame.
I used the scraps of the background to cut the poinsettias which I shaped and added with silver micro beads in the centres.
Not your usual colour or style for a Christmas tree but I love the simple mixed media look to this card.
