Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built
and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
I spotted this card
on Pinterest a couple weeks ago, and I was inspired to put my own twist on it for this challenge:
I used my mini MISTI to stamp my deer family first. It took a couple of stampings to get a nice, dark image, but that's the beauty of the MISTI! Then I masked off the ground directly beneath the deer and used the pine tree stamp to create my forest. I stamped some of the trees directly, and some after stamping off once or twice to create a difference in depth. Then I masked the moon with a punched out circle and used SU!'s Brocade Blue to sponge in the night sky. When I removed the moon mask, the moon was a bit too bright, so I sponged some light gray ink on it to soften the look. Then, I splatted some watered down white paint to give the look of snow.
After, I removed the ground mask, I sponged on some glue on the ground and added some fine glitter to make a snow covering. I'm really please with how this turned out!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will hop over to the House blog
