Happy Everything by Amanda Southern


Hi everyone

With Christmas only a matter of days away for most of us there are those around us that don’t celebrate it at all and it’s also nice to remember them at this time of the year. With that in mind I have made a Happy Everything card instead of a Christmas card and kept with the traditional red and green of Christmas.

Here’s What I Did:-

I have kept this one clean and simple but there is a lot of masking off to layer up the stamping. I first stamped the central flower in black archival ink and once the ink was dry I masked off the image with masking fluid. I then stamped the other 3 Azoline designed stamps onto post it notes and cut them out these cut outs I will be using to allow me to build up the stamping behind the central flower. Once I had stamped and masked them I rubbed off the masking fluid.

The colouring of my image was done using alcohol markers and shading added with coloured pencils.

I splashed slightly diluted white Dylusions paint over the lot and then stamped my ‘Happy Everything’ sentiment.

Mounted onto black card and then onto a card blank.

What I Used:-

Other 3 stamps are also Carabelle designed by Azoline
Alcohol Markers like Promarkers, Spectrum Noir etc
Card Blank

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and to those who don’t celebrate Christmas I wish you a very Happy Everything.

This is my last post for That’s Crafty! for this year, so have a good one and I’ll see you all on the other side!
