Hello and welcome!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a snowy holiday scene!
Today I decided to play with wonderful NND Main Street Christmas stamp set that comes with a big fabulous village image large enough to fill an extended A2 size card front! To start, I used the coordinating Main Street Christmas Die Set and Copic X-Press paper. I quickly made the die cutting and them stamped the outline image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die or a perfect alignment. Next I proceeded with coloring using copic markers.
In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC MARKERS R22-R35-R39; YG21-YG93-YG95-YG99; T0-T1-T5; C00-C2-C4; W00-W2-W4; BG07-N26; Y11.
The sky background was created by inking a piece of Watercolor Cardstock from Tim Holtz with Mermaid Lagoon Oxide, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch Oxide and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks. The snow effect was created by flicking TONS of white splotches made from a plain white gouache diluted with a small amount of water and a regular brush. I let the inked piece air dry well and then added on top more snow through NND Petite Snow stencil with a white embossing paste. The sentiment was heat embossed on a narrow strip of a red cardstock colored with R35 copic marker for a perfect match with the village image. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension and finished by adding falling snow all across the colored houses with a white gel pen.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet winter card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
