The Great Outdoors!

The prompt at Jingle Belles this fortnight is The Great Outdoors, and I had to pull out my all-time favourite tree stamps to play along! These are also perfect for the Stamping Sensations "Simply Christmas" challenge. 

Supplies: Salty Ocean distress ink; Ranger blue mist; Tattered Angels Sapphire mist; Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Versmark; clear EP; Diamond Stickles; Liquid Pearls; blue rhinestones from dollarama; scraps of white glimmer paper; Stampendous sentiment




I used a 1.5" circle punch and a post-it to mask the moon, sponged with Salty Ocean ink; and then sprayed thoroughly with the mists with the mask still in place. 



Supplies: Ranger interference red mist; Tattered Angels Tattered Rose mist; Stampin' Up Lovely as a Tree; sentiment from PTI; snowflakes from MME; Distress inks in Worn Lipstick & Squeezed Lemonade; Memento Gray Flannel; glitter paper and rhinestone strips from dollarama


For the pink card, I sponged only the yellow ink for a glow around the masked moon, and the rest of the colour is from the sprays. SO GLITTERY!

The post-it doesn't provide a solid secure mask (as you can see) but I've made peace with the imperfections, lol!

xoxo,
Jessi

Gorgeous card. I love the way you've created the mottled blue sky, and that's my favourite Christmas sentiment too :-) Thanks for joining in with us at Stamping Sensations this month. Maddy x
