Hey crafty friends! It’s crazy to think that in just a few short days we will be celebrating a new year. The end of the year seemed so distant but in a few little blinks here we are! It was an interesting year, to say the least. The global impact of Covid-19 had an effect on almost everyone. My hope for each and every one of you is that 2022 is better than the last and we celebrate those small victories that keep us going in the right direction.
To celebrate the New Year, I created a card inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge # 115 Happy New Year. My card focus is on the contrast between the inspirational photos.
I began by creating the background panel first. I inked up a piece of white smooth cardstock with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo then stamped the panel with Wood Plank Background Stamp.
For the images, I colored the cute snowman and background elements with my Copic Markers. I used the Ready, Set, Snow add-on to die cut the snow globe for my card.
Copic Marker Combination
Snowman: B00, B000, B0000
Brown: E29, E27, E25, E23
Pinks: RV17, RV55, RV52, RV00
Gold: Y26, Y38
Blue: B29, B26
Using Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink, I ink blended the sky and added splatters with white acrylic paint for snow texture. Next, I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and set them aside.
Working on the background, I trimmed the panel to slightly smaller than A2 size and added the sentiment with white embossing powder.
And finally, I arranged all the small images and created my snow globe scene on the background panel.
That’s all for this card, I wish you many blessings for a happy, healthy, and creative new year…until next time, sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
