MMCC December: Scenery card for a friend


Hi to You, and happy 1st of December!

It's time for another Mixed Media Card Challenge:


My Christmas card project is not proceeding as it should be - I know for sure that I'll again run out of time and will finish the cards on the very last minute. However, for getting myself in a good Christmas card making mood, I thought it would be a good idea to clear my mind and in between  make something non-christmassy. So that's why my Home themed December MMCC card has a summer touch:



The card front is cut from heavy aquarelle paper. I started with decorating the bottom part with flowers, and for that I used a flower stencil and heavy gel medium.When rubbing green inks over the flowers, the gel medium acts as a resist and the flowers remain white, i.e. the color of the background paper.
The upper part of the card front is colored with light blue inks and decorated with splashing water on the inked surface. That is my favorite technique for adding extra texture!




The tree stems are stamped on dark brown paper, cut out, and glued on a die-cut flowers. The die I used is the smallest size die in this nesting die set. The chipboard house is painted with several layers of brown Glimmer Glaze by Tattered Angels. Before the paint had completely dried I rubbed the paint with a toothpick and removed some of the paint.
A fun card project!

I suggest you hop over to MMCC blog and view the entire collection of amazing cards the design team has made for your inspiration. Many of the cards are Christmas themed, so if you are missing tips for your Christmas cards I recommend you take a look!

Wishing you a nice week!
Hugs,
