Hi there, as this is my last post before the big day at the weekend, I have a card to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas featuring a rather cute Bentley in his Santa hat.
That’s Crafty! Clear Stamp Sets – Bentley, Beki
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics – Green Gold, Yellow Green Light, Metallic Gold
Kraft Card Blank
My green paper actually came from my bits box and was made by swiping the green and gold paints over a thin sheet of A4 card with an old credit card, carrying on until I was happy with the effect.
I used the snowflake stencil with the Versamark ink to apply a pattern to my green and gold paper, heat embossing the snowflakes with white powder. I also added some swipes with the inkpad, which I embossed with the white powder. I then distressed the edges and added the paper to the card blank.
I stamped Bentley on stamping card with the black ink and coloured him with watercolour pencils, trimming the image to a rectangular panel. I stamped the Santa hat on a scrap of card, coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out leaving a fairly thick border, which I painted grey. The thicker border ensured that The hat would cover up Bentley’s top whiskers.
I next stamped the wish text directly on the image panel, and then added it to a mat of glitter card. I glued the panel on to the card blank to finish.
I hope you all have a really lovely Christmas and will see you next year when That’s Crafty! has some great things in store for you.
